Abstract

Micro-AbstractThe role of consolidation radiation therapy (RT) in advanced Hodgkin lymphoma is controversial, especially if a complete response (CR) is achieved according to positron emission tomography-computed tomography imaging after chemotherapy. In this series, low-dose (approximately 20 Gy) RT to all sites of original disease improved progression-free survival, even in the setting of a CR after ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine). Long-term toxicity was similar between chemotherapy and combined modality therapy.
