TORRES NETO, Juvenal da Rocha; PRUDENTE, Ana Carolina Lisbôa  and  SANTOS, Ronmel Lisboa dos. Cancer of canal anal and anus. A demografic study in Sergipe - Brasil. Rev bras. colo-proctol. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.2, pp.190-195. ISSN 0101-9880.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-98802007000200010.

The lack of specific demographic studies about anal canal and anus cancer in Brazil and a better understanding of pathologies' behavior in Sergipe's state had motivated the accomplishment of such study. In retrospective analysis (1993 - 2005) we evaluate the main demographics characteristics of the anal cancer in Sergipe. From a total of 91 patients, 69 (76.6%) were female and 21 (23.4%) were male. The average of new cases a year was of 0,39 per 100.000 people, with standard deviation of ± 0,16. The squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) account of 68% of the cases of anal cancer. In the present study it was observed an unconnected medical charts fulfillment and the necessity of a protocol for the assistance as well as the follow-up of the patients with anal canal and anus cancer.
