Literatür İçeriği :  ABSTRACT Disparities in cancer care have been documented, however, less is known about the disparities in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). We reviewed the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database to evaluate disparities in receipt of radiotherapy (RT), and relative survival among patients diagnosed with stage I DLBCL between 1998 and 2008 on the basis of age, sex and ethnicity. African Americans and other races were significantly less likely to receive RT compared to Caucasians [adjusted odds ratio (OR) of 0.743 and 0.81, respectively]. Similarly, age 60+ years and males were less likely to receive radiotherapy compared to their counterparts (P<.001). Caucasian race, younger age and female sex were associated with better survival among patients receiving RT. This study showed that 38.2% of patients with stage I DLBCL received radiotherapy. Survival rates are significantly higher for patients who received RT.
