Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A nationwide study of squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva in Israeli Jewish women has been conducted for a comparison of the incidence, the age pattern and the ethnic distribution of squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva to those of squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. The mean annual incidence rates by age in squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva rise continuously to age 70 + while in squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix a plateau is reached at age 40 to age 69. In contrast to the relatively low incidence of squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix in Israeli Jewish women, the age-specific incidence rates of squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva are similar to those of white women in the United States. On the other hand, there is a trend to a higher incidence of both squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix and squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva in the North African ethnic group of Israeli Jewish women.
