Abstract

Aim of the study: This study was designed to see the demographic profile of colorectal carcinoma in Bangladesh. Methods: This study was conducted at the Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation in Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders (BIRDEM) Hospital Dhaka from 20.10.2007 to 20.10.2008. Histologically confirmed patients of carcinoma colon among all patients undergoing colonoscopy during the mentioned period were included. Their epidemiological and clinical history and investigation reports were recorded. The mean and percentages were calculated. Result: Out of 1297patients undergoing colonoscopy for various indications, 140 patients had histologically proved colorectal carcinoma. Of the 98 (70%) were male and 42(30%) were female. The mean age of CRC in males was 47.07 years (SD 16.779), ranging from 15-80 years. The age of female patients was ranging from 14 - 70 years (mean 41.41 SD 14.654, range 14-70). Carcinoma in the rectosigmoid region was more common among patients in an earlier age group. Conclusion: CRC is more common among males. But females are affected at an earlier age. Rectosigmoid carcinoma occurred predominately among patients early in the age group.
