Descriptive epidemiology of gall-bladder cancer in Europe.
Trends in mortality from cancer of the gall-bladder and bile ducts over the period 1965-1989 were analysed for 25 European countries on the basis of official death certifications from the World Health Organization databank.
A high-mortality area -i.e. with overall death certification rates, world standard, around or over 2/100000 men and 4/100000 women in 1985-1989 - was identified in Germany and the surrounding central European countries (Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland).
The highest rates were in Hungary (3.9/100000 men and 7.4/100000 women).
