We reported retrospectively 53 cases of colon cancer identified during 5 years in our surgery division. The aim of this report was to study epidemiological, clinical and therapeutic aspects of this malignancy in Burkinabe setting from January the 1st 2003 to 31st December 2008. Fifty three cases of colon cancer representing 16.2% of digestive tract malignancies and 2.3% of all malignancies were identified. The mean age was 49 years. The male was predominant. The average visit time was 16 months. Transit disorders (67.9%), a sub-occlusive syndrome (7.5%) and intestinal obstruction (24.5%) were the most frequent circumstances of discovery. Colonoscopy was performed in 64.15% of cases and the barium enema in 11.3% of cases. Right colonic localization represented 54.7% of cases. Ulcerative budding of cancer aspects (66%) and adenocarcinoma (75.5%) were dominant. Liver metastasis was observed in 8 cases. The right hemicolectomy was performed in 50.9%. The removal rate of the cancer after surgery was 86.8%. Ten (10) patients experienced complications such as parietal suppuration. Ten (10) deaths were recorded. The 5-year survival rate was 47.2%.
