Abstract: In a personal series of 56 patients with colorectal cancer operated over a 3-year period from 1984 to 1986, 50 patients were followed up until death or for at least 5 years. The age, distribution, clinical features and stage of disease at presentation appear to be similar to those in the West. All 5 of Dukes A, 10 of 11 cases of Dukes B and 8 of 16 cases of Dukes C disease have survived at least 5 years. The 5-year survivors include a patient who had undergone right hepatectomy for a large liver metastasis. The 5-year survival in this small personal series appears encouraging.
