  1. Risk factors for non-melanomatous skin cancer in Alexandria, Egypt.

    Article - En anglais

    The role of constitutional and environmental factors on the risk of non-melanomatous skin cancer was evaluated in a case-control study conducted in 1992 in Alexandria, Egypt, on 136 incident histologically confirmed (99 basal-cell and 37 squamous-cell) cases of non-melanomatous skin cancer (NMSC) and 145 controls in hospital for a broad spectrum of acute non-sun-related dermatological conditions.

    In relation to skin colour, compared with brown-skinned subjects, the multivariate relative risks (RR) were 2.3 for olive-skinned subjects and 3.8 for fair/medium-skinned subjects.

    Three cases and 29 controls were black (RR=0.2).

    The trend in risk with skin colour was significant.
