Resumen An epidemiological case-control study of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas revealed an excess of male patients with large-cell lymphomas primary to the gastrointestinal tract and oral cavity who had evidence of substantial exposure to asbestos. Histopathological slides from 26 of 28 cases of men interviewed between 1977 and 1981 about environmental exposure, showed evidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the large-cell type. When neighbourhood controls were matched to patients for age, race and sex, 13 matched pairs were discordant for asbestos exposure, and in 12 of these the exposed individual was a lymphoma patient. 10 patients and 1 control also reported a history of malaria.
