PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to define distinctive clinicopathologic features of malignant lymphoma in pediatric and young adult patients, particularly in Korea. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From May 1993 to November 2005, 294 pediatric and young adult patients (age range, 0-31 years) with malignant lymphoma were analyzed in this study at Samsung Medical Center. We also compared this group with the Korean all-ages group and Western younger age group using previously reported data. RESULTS: Hodgkin disease appears more common in the younger age group than in the all-ages group (15% vs. 5.3%; P = .001). Among patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), T/natural killer cell immunophenotype is more common in the present younger age group than the all-ages group (45.5% vs. 25%; P = .001) and Western younger age group (45.5% vs. 13.3%; P = .001). Lymphoblastic lymphoma and T-anaplastic large-cell lymphoma included relatively higher proportions in the younger age group. Overall survival for patients in the group aged 21-31 years was significantly inferior to that of the other younger age group (P = .014). CONCLUSION: The incidence of Hodgkin disease and T-cell NHL is relatively higher in pediatric and young-adult population group than the all-ages group. However, treatment outcome of the younger age group, excluding lymphoblastic lymphoma, seems to be similar to those in any age group.
