We propose a modified log rank test for the analysis of competing risks survival data, when failure type is missing for some individuals. The proposed test reduces to a standard log rank test when all failure types are known. The test arises from a partial likelihood, constructed under semiparametric assumptions on the relationship between cause-specific hazards.
