After describing the enormous variation in incidence of oesophageal carcinoma in different populations, the authors report data on the incidence of carcinoma of the oesophagus in the province of Trieste, Italy. There is a high incidence in men, this being among the highest in the world, excluding areas with so-called 'endemic' disease. On the other hand, the incidence in women is low, even compared to other European regions. The epidemiological data reveal in particular that, in the province of Trieste, carcinoma of the oesophagus affects predominantly young and middle aged men. This may be related to high alcohol and tobacco consumption.
