PROFIL EPIDEMIOCLINIQUE ET EVOLUTIF DES LYMPHOMES MALINS NON HODGKINIEN VUS AU SERVICE D’ONCOLOGIE DU CHUJRA ANTANANARIVO MADAGASCAR ” EPIDEMIOCLINIC AND EVOLUTIVE PROFILE OF NON-HODGKINIAN MALIGNANT LYMPHOMES AT THE SERVICE OF ONCOLOGY OF THE UNIVERSITY
Non-Hodgkin's malignant lymphomas (NHLH) are malignant proliferations of lymphoid tissues. The objective of our study is to describe the epidemiological, clinical and evolutionary profile of malignant non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosed, monitored and treated in the oncology department of the Joseph Ravoahangy Andrianavalona (CHUJRA) Antananarivo Madagascar University Hospital. This is a descriptive retrospective study of all cases of LMNH diagnosed in the Oncology Department of CHUJRA Antananarivo Madagascar over a period of 05 years, from 01 January 2013 to 31 December 2017. During our study, 96 cases were collected with an average age of 39 years. There was a male predominance with a sex ratio of 1.52. The most common clinical manifestations were lymphadenopathy and general impairment. Stage III and Stage III LMNH were the most common with 34.37% and 30.20%, respectively. More than 90% of patients received specific treatment with a complete remission of about 80%. But many patients are still under diagnosed for lack of means and for fear of consulting a doctor, which still requires a lot of effort on the part of officials at all levels.
