    "ME/CFS patients have difficulties controlling viral infections and many develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma."

    Does it say in the full text how many develop lymphoma?

    Being a meeting abstract, there may not be a full paper published yet. I tried Sci-hub and it just gave the abstract.

    An unexpectedly high number of victims of the Lake Tahoe outbreak developed non- Hodgkins lymphoma. That was the reason they investigated XMRV.

    if I remember rightly, it was the ones who were positive for EBV during the outbreak who were most likely to become ill.

    Whether it is common in the general ME population is another question.
