Of 402 patients with Hodgkin's disease seen at the Memorial Center between 1949 and 1955, 90 survived more than 10 years. A detailed review of the treatment necessary to achieve more than 10-year survival was undertaken. Clinical data were used to stage the extent of disease at the time of biopsy. Lymphangiograms were not done during this period of time. Overall survival improved considerably compared with 2 previous reviews at the Memorial Center. Five-year survival improved from 17.7% to 38.3%. Ten-year survival improved from 7.7% to 22.4%. Twenty-eight out of 74 (37.8%) stage IA patients survived more than 10 years.
