Sažetak

The aim of this retrospective study was to provide the incidence and mortality rate for all patients with laryngeal carcinoma diagnosed in Osijek-Baranja County, during the period of 1999 – 2008. In this period, there were 329 registered patients, from which 301 (91.5%) males, and 28 (8.5%) females. Age-standardized rate (ASR World) laryngeal cancer incidence was 6.4/100,000 (13.4/100,000 for males and 0.9/100,000 for females). In the same period, 238 people, including 224 (94.1%) men and 14 (5.9%) women died of laryngeal carcinoma. Age-standardized rate (ASR World) laryngeal cancer
mortality was 4.4/100,000 (9.8/100,000 for males and 0.5/100 000 for females). There is a significant decline in mortality in males and increased mortality in females. Laryngeal carcinoma is a significant public health problem in the Osijek-Baranja county. Although the study period shows a tendency to decrease in the number of new cases and deaths, in the times ahead it is important to focus the emphasis on prevention and early detection with the goal of reducing incidence and mortality.
