The first half of this volume deals with diagnostic aspects, whereas the second half focuses on recent developments in the understanding of the pathogenesis of Hodgkins disease.The book opens with a chapter on the differential diagnosis between Hodgkins disease and non-Hodgkins lymphomas, and provides guidelines on how to deal with the grey areas between these two groups of diseases. Separate chapters follow on the criteria for a prognostically relevant histological grading of the most common subtype of Hodgkins disease- data on the nodular lymphocyte predominance subtype of Hodgkins disease- and the various reagents used to define the immunophenotype of Reed-Sternberg cells. Subsequent chapters deal with potential mediators of lymphocyte agglutination to Reed-Sternberg cells- immunological alterations in Hodgkins disease- molecular genetic studies into the pathogenesis of Hodgkins disease- and results of studies on Hodgkin cell lines.This book provides data that go beyond those covered in textbooks in pathology and hematology and should be of interest to all pathologists and clinicians dealing with the diagnosis and management of Hodgkins disease, as well as to lymphoma researchers.
