Incidence and mortality of carcinoids of the colon : data from the Connecticut tumor registry.
The aims of this study were to calculate the true incidence of colonic carcinoids in Connecticut from 1976 to 1986 and to determine the outcome of patients with these lesions.
Fifty-four patients with carcinoids of the colon were identified (23 male and 31 female patients).
Their average age was 64.1+-2.1 years, with a range of 12 to 83 years.
The age-adiusted incidence was 0.31 cases/100,000 population/year.
Forty-eight percent of the carcinoids were located in the cecum; 16%, ascending colon; 6%, transverse colon; 11%, descending colon; 13%, sigmoid colon; and 6%, not assigned.
Follow-up information was available in all cases.
