Abstract

In a case-control study in northeastern Italy hepatitis C virus infection seemed to increase by about 50-fold the risk of non Hodgkin's lymphoma involving the liver and major salivary glands (i.e. larger than that for hepatocellular carcinoma) and by about fourfold the risk of lymphomas at other sites.
