The Hospital registry data of the Moroccan National Oncology Institute--which is the main structure in the field--are presented here. We collected 5,148 files between 1986 and 1987. Descriptive epidemiological aspects of the most frequent cancer sites are given. Cervix uterine neoplasia is the most common carcinoma in females (35%) followed by breast cancer (22.3%). In males, nasopharyngeal cancer accounts for 12.3%, lymphoma 10.1%, larynx cancer 8.2% and lung cancer 6.5%. These data, although, constitute a starting point to a more complete approach of cancer epidemiology in Morocco; Especially since October 1, 1990 when the population--based cancer registry of Rabbat-Sale Wilaya was started.
