Abstract

This paper reports the results of the epidemiological surveillance of childhood malignancies in Hungary from 1988 through 1997, according to the database of the Hungarian Paediatric Cancer Registry. The number of analysed cases was 2146. The crude incidence of all childhood malignancies was 132 per one million person-years. The number of new cases diagnosed in Hungary varied between 240 to 280 per year. This number did not change significantly over the observed period in spite of the decreasing number of children in Hungary, therefore, the incidence showed a significant increase of 3.3% per year. The authors also present data about the geographical distribution of childhood cancer in Hungary and survival rates for different tumour types. The 10-year overall survival rate of all malignant diseases diagnosed in Hungary during the analysed ten-year period was 62.6%.
