Abstract

Bilateral iliac crest biopsies were performed at the time of bone marrow (BM) harvest in patients with poor-risk Hodgkin's disease (HD) undergoing autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) 67 consecutive patients with normal trephine biopsies (58 unilateral; nine bilateral) taken 2 weeks prior to harvest were studied. Nine (13%) of patients had BM infilfration with HD on the harvest biopsies. These patients had all previously had only unilateral biopsies. Three patients did not proceed to ABMT because disease progression became clinically apparent, but the remaining six patients were infused with involved marrow. One patient died 6 weeks post ABMT, with no evidence of disease at post-mortem. One patient showed no response to ABMT and four patients either had a partial or complete response to ABMT. Of the responders, three patients are now in complete remission at 53, 39 and 33 months past ABMT.
