More than any other tumor, Hodgkin's disease resembles infectious disease. Until recently this resemblance has largely been a matter of histology and clinical symptoms. A year ago, however, Vianna, Greenwald, and Davies presented preliminary data' suggesting that epidemiologic similarities may also exist (1). In this issue they detail their findings. Starting with a student group at one Albany, New York, high school they have, by various means, confirmed among these students, their contacts, and their contacts' contacts a total of 31 cases of Hodgkin's disease and 3 cases of other lymphomas diagnosed between 1948 and 1971.
