Lymphomas accounts about 10% of all childhood malignancies, and non-Hodjkin's lymphomas are the major group of lymphomas in children, so it's necessary to increase our knowledge about this subject.
This descriptive study was performed on 60 cases of non-Hodjkin's lymphoma aged 0-14 years, referring to Mophid Ped. Hospital in seven years (1369-1375). The considered parameters are type, grading, sex, age and site of involvement. Among the patients, 42 (70%) were male and 18 (30%) were female. 52 patients (86.6%) had high grade lymphoma and Burkitt lymphoma was seen in 39 (65%) of subjects. Thirty patients (50 % ) had 0-5 years. Extranodal involvements (ilium, ovary, nasopharynx, small intestine) were seen in 36 (60%) patients.
The findings in the present study were similar to those reported from other countries. Although further studies should be done for approaching the better results.
