Question Mark

Multiple choice question of the night – Hodgkin’s Disease is named after:

  • Kaj Varmland is a woman from Sweden with Hodgkin’s Disease. Or, as she puts it: I meet Mr. Hodgkin, a nasty type, casting me into a world full of toxins … but I am going to chide me show him. I meet my guides through the poison swamp on chemotherapy banana – the professional and friendly doctors and nurses on the chemotherapy reception. Together with them and my friends have Mr. H soon förpassats to eternity.
  • Thomas Hodgkin, prominent British physician and considered on the most prominent pathologists of his time and a pioneer in preventative medicine. In 1832, Hodgkin’s work marked the beginning of times when a pathologist was actively involved in the clinical process.
