A ten-year prospective study of Crohn's disease was carried out in Zagreb, Yugoslavia.
It included both inpatients and outpatients regardless of the extent and severity of the disease.
The mean annual incidence rate was 0.7 per 100000 between 1 January 1980 and 31 December 1989.
There was no increase in the incidence of Crohn's disease during the study period.
The prevalence of Crohn's disease was 8.3 per 100000 on 31 December 1989.
The results confirm the low frequency of Crohn's disease in central and southern Europe.
