Those who were ill, as a child, measles, the risk of Hodgkin's lymphoma was on 66% lower than those who did not suffer from it.Corrected measles is also associated with a reduced risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by 40%.The chickenpox is associated with a 47% reduction in the risk of lymphoma.
The risk of Hodgkin's lymphoma was lower also in those who had mumps, rubella , whooping cough and scarlatina.The more infectious diseases were in childhood, the lower the risk of lymphoma.The three childhood diseases are associated with a reduction in the risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas omy by 40%, and Hodgkin's lymphoma by 80%.
Three children with confirmed Hodgkin's lymphoma got measles, after measles, all three of them had lymphoma, two of them had a small relapse in two years, the third one has been suffering for 6 years (Poland)Infantile Hodgkin's disease: remission after measles. 1973, Mota, BMJ
