CPD: On 06/12/13, a 14-year old boy was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma with bone marrow
involvement, meeting listing 113.05B1. The language of the listing specifies “Consider
under a disability for 24 months from the date of diagnosis...”
CDR: Conducted in 12/2015. The child maintains normal weight, strength, and range of motion.
He underwent bone marrow transplant on 01/2014 and current laboratory findings show
no evidence of disease.
Discussion: The 24-month timeframe has expired, therefore the adjudicator at CDR must find MI
at Step 1 of the evaluation process. At Step 2, the CPD impairment (Hodgkin lymphoma)
does not meet, equal, or functionally equal listing 113.05B1 due to expiration of
the timeframe. The adjudicator must proceed to Step 3 of the evaluation process.
