    Article - En anglais

    An epidemiologic study of the incidence of Crohn's disease during the 25-year period 1963-1987 within a geographically well defined area has been performed.

    The mean annual incidence during the 25 years was 6.1/105 inhabitants.

    During the first quinannual the incidence was 4.3/105 inhabitants, but during the next four quiquennia the incidence was very stable around 6.6/105 inhabitants.

    The point prevalence on 31 December 1987 was 146/105, with a male to female ratio of 1:1.15.

    An analysis of birth cohorts could not reveal any cohort more prone to develop the disease.
