The disease described by Thomas Hodgkin in 1932 undoubtedly included cases of lymphosarcoma. His original work described several patients whose clinical records could have been interpreted as evidence of either Hodgkin’s disease, as we now know it, or lymphosarcoma. Kundrat attempted to distinguish cytologically between Hodgkin’s disease and other tumors of lymphoid origin. His criteria were, however, the source of some controversy. Some of the arguments set forth by investigators opposed to Kundrat have been summarized in the section on Pathology and Classification in the foregoing chapter on Hodgkin’s disease.
