Since data are limited our aim was to study the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) in patients Crohn's disease (CD) presenting with stenosing colonic lesions in the population-based, Veszprem province database, which included incident patients diagnosed between January 1, 1977 and December 31, 2008.


The data of 506 incident CD patients were analyzed (age at diagnosis: 31.5, SD: 13.8 years). Both hospital and outpatient records were collected and comprehensively reviewed.


CRC was diagnosed in total 5 CD patients (total follow-up: 5758 person-years) during follow-up. 47 patients presented with colonic/ileocolonic disease and a stenotic lesion in the colon. The total follow-up was 502 person-years (mean: 10.6 SD 7.1 years). CRC developed in 3 patients (6.3%), equalling 0.6/100 person-years. In a Kaplan–Meier analysis the probability of developing CRC was 4.7% after 5 years and 7% after 10 years of disease duration. In a sensitivity analysis, we included all patients who presented with colonic/ileocolonic disease and a stenosing colonic lesion at diagnosis or during follow-up (n = 66, total follow-up: 734 person-years, mean: 11.2 SD 8.3 years). The prevalence of cancer was overall 4.5% (0.4/100 person-years). In a Kaplan–Meier analysis the probability of developing CRC was 3.3% and 5.1% after 5 and 10 years of disease duration.


The risk to develop CRC in colonic CD patients presenting with or developing a stenotic lesion in the colon is high already after relatively short disease duration suggesting the need for careful surveillance of these patients.
