Abstract

For the first time the presence of a consistent number of malignant lymphomas among persons at high risk for AIDS has been documented in Italy. The majority of our cases started to occur in 1983, in line with the trend for a 2-year delay in the spread of the epidemic of AIDS in Europe. The patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphomas had an increased incidence of high grade subtypes, particularly of the Burkitt type, and were in an advanced stage with frequent extranodal involvement. Patients with Hodgkin's disease had a lower incidence of extranodal localization in comparison with the North American series. American patients with malignant lymphomas were reported to be predominantly homosexual; in contrast, the Italian cases were mostly drug addicts. The occurrence of malignant lymphomas was also correlated in Italian patients as well as in American patients with a shorter survival time, when compared with malignant lymphomas occurring in the same age group of the general population.
