  1. The incidence of cerebral glioma in the working population : a forgotten cancer ?

    Article - En anglais

    We studied the incidence of intracranial tumours in Lothian Region in south-east Scotland in 1989-90.

    Among 106 patients resident in the Region, 60 (57%) were of working age (15-64 years).

    All but two cases (97%) were histologically confirmed.

    The average annual incidence of cerebral glioma in this age range was 5.9 (95% CI 3.8-8.0) per 100 000 per year.

    Cerebral glioma will affect approximately 2100 people of working age in the UK every year.
