Childhood Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment (PDQ®)

Primary Refractory/Recurrent Hodgkin Lymphoma in Children and Adolescents

Primary refractory Hodgkin lymphoma is lymphoma that continues to grow or spread during treatment. Recurrent Hodgkin lymphoma is cancer that has recurred (come back) after it has been treated. The lymphoma may come back in the lymph system or in other parts of the body, such as the lungs, liver, bones, or bone marrow.
