Abstract

In this study, we have shown that there are seasonal differences in the onset of the (Epstein-Barr virus) EBV-positive and -negative forms of paediatric Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). This suggests aetiological differences between the two forms of this disease. EBV-positive HL might be a rare consequence of primary EBV infection.
