The authors report the cytomorphological analysis and study regarding the survival of 53 cases of early gastric cancer diagnosed in the Oncology Department between 1971 and 1984. The report, subdivided according to age, sex and TNM of the patients, analyses cyto-histological correlations in these E.G.C. cases. In particular it is stressed that the biopsy combined with the cytology, using aimed collection during the endoscopy, reach a sensitivity of 0.91 and a specificity of 0.97. The actuarial survival rate indicates percentage of patients living at five and at eight years of 86.91 % and 73.04 % respectively. The morphological and clinical characteristics of the 53 cases of E. G. C. do not differ from those reported in Literature, but their detection is not satisfactory in relation to the number of advanced gastric cancers. The authors point out the necessity to carry out aimed screening programmes, as Forli county is a high-risk area for gastric carcinoma.
