  1. Incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in north west Greece : rarity of Crohn's disease in an area where ulcerative colitis is common.

    Article - En anglais

    Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) are generally regarded as diseases of affluent societies of the Western World, although their frequency in less affluent areas is not well established.

    This retrospective study therefore, assesses the incidence of UC and CD in a semirural area of north west Greece during the 10 year period 1982-1991.

    By the 31 December 1991, 61 patients had met standard diagnostic criteria for UC (annual incidence 4.0/105, 95% confidence intervals 3-0 to 5.0/105) and only five patients met the diagnostic criteria for CD (annual incidence 0.3/105, 95% confidence intervals 0.1 to 0.8/105) in this area of 157 214 inhabitants.
