Olsson, Håkan LU and Brandt, L. (1982) In New England Journal of Medicine 306(6). p.367-368
Abstract
To the Editor: In a letter in the November 5 issue, Alperovitch and Feingold reported an increased sex ratio (male:female) among children of women with multiple sclerosis.1 We have observed a remarkably decreased sex ratio in the offspring of young adults with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We recorded the sex of the children of 197 patients with this disease who were participating in an epidemiologic study and obtained the same information from a control group of 240 patients without any evident malignant disease. Interviewing the control patients established that they had mainly cardiovascular or respiratory disorders. The results of this study are. © 1982, Massachusetts Medical Society. All rights reserved.
