Between 1967 and 1976, 1,525 Slovenian patients with a histological diagnosis of intestinal metaplasia (IM) were classified according to subtype of IM based on morphology and mucin staining; 518 cases were diagnosed with type I, 197 with type II and 275 with type III, but in 291 the diagnosis of IM was not confirmed.
Patients who had developed cancer or died up to 1986 were identified by record linkage at the Slovenia Cancer Registry and the Central Population Registry in Slovenia.
A total of 34 incident cases of gastric cancer occurring at least 6 months after the diagnosis of IM were identified.
The standardised incidence ratio (SIR) for stomach cancer was 2.23 in the whole cohort.
