PMID:  6099034     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Identical Hodgkin's disease (HD) in monozygotic twins is presented together with a review of five previously reported pairs. The 12 reported cases of concordant HD in monozygotic twins had three characteristic features: a younger age than HD patients in general, a short interval between the onset of the disease in the two twins, and a similar histologic pattern in both twins. These rare cases may suggest that genetic and environmental factors are responsible for the occurrence of HD.
