Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The management of Hodgkin's disease during pregnancy is reviewed in the light of experience from 15 patients. The modification of the investigative procedures during pregnancy is discussed and the use of the single-film (at 24 hours) lymphogram is described. The importance of an individual treatment policy for each patient, after careful consideration of the facts of the case, is emphasized and the dangers of inadequate therapy are stressed.
