Hodgkin's Lymphoma (Disease) Past, Present, and Future
Hodgkin's Disease - the term coined by Samual Wilks in 1865 to represent a large number of cancers of the lymphatic system. The definition was narrowed down over the years as a distinction was made between various forms of cancer with a major group broken off and termed Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The name Hodgkin's Disease was used until about 2001 when oncologists marshaled the World Health Organization (WHO) to use the term Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
