Using a Sturmian-like expansion of the (first-order) Dirac Coulomb Green's function, the two-photon probability amplitude for the transition in hydrogenic systems is calculated as a function of nuclear charge Z. A comparison between relativistic and non-relativistic treatments is made, taking care of the influence of retardation in both cases.
