Abstract

Cancers of the anal canal represent 1.5% of digestive cancers [1]. They predominate in women (sex ratio of 4 in France) and two thirds of patients over 65 years. The incidence is increasing and the age at diagnosis decreased. Over 90% of patients have locoregional disease diagnosis in the initial phase. Epidermoid carcinoma represent 90% of histological forms.
