Early stage HL

Prognostic factors: patients with stage I or II disease are generally divided into favourable and unfavourable prognostic groups using risk factors, e.g.

• ESR >50mm/h or >30 in presence of 'B' symptoms.

• >4 separate sites of nodal involvement; mediastinal mass ratio > 0.35.

• Other risk factors identified in studies have been gender, histology, disease confined to upper cervical nodes, anaemia and low serum albumin.
