Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe 100 consecutive patients with histologically proven gastric carcinoma who were admitted to various hospitals in Northern Pakistan. Twenty-six per cent of patients were under 40 years of age. In a majority of patients the tumour was of a morphological type associated with poor prognosis. In most cases the disease was already at an advanced stage at the time of diagnosis, and most patients died within one year.
