Abstract: We investigate the clinical characteristics, prognosis and treatment of relapsed and refractory Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Twenty patients with relapsed and refractory Hodgkin lymphoma were treated by chemotherapy or autologous stem cell transplantation in our hospital from April 2006 to August 2012. The retrospective analysis of the records from the 20 patients reflected both 5-year overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS). The overall effectiveness was 80% for the 20 patients. The 5-year overall survival rate and 5-year progression-free survival rate were 73.5% and 62.7%, respectively. Therefore, comprehensive treatment should be actively utilized in the case of invalid second-line regimen for the refractory HL patients.
