Abstract

During the last 5 years in the Polish Children's Leukemia/Lymphoma Study Group (7 centers) 241 children with Hodgkin's Disease and 14 children with Large Cell Anaplastic Lymphoma were treated.

In 5 of them we had problems with differential diagnosis.

Immunohistochemical tests:

  • CD30 positive, CD15 positive, LCA negative allowed us to change the diagnosis from Large Cell Anaplastic Lymphoma to Hodgkin's Disease (one child) and

  • CD30 positive, CD15 negative from Hodgkin's Disease to Large Cell Anaplastic Lymphoma (four children).

All children achieved remission after changing the protocol of chemotherapy.
