To determine the incidence of gliomas in Zenica – Doboj Canton and to analyze its potential connection to socio – demographic characteristics and its distribution throughout municipalities of Zenica – Doboj Canton in the period of 2009 – 2019. Retrospective, descriptive – analytical, 10 – year study included 146 patients from Zenica – Doboj Canton. Data was obtained and reviewed from patient’s medical records. It included patient’s socio – demographic characteristics and pathohistological diagnosis. Age, gender and place of birth were analysed and correlated with types and grades of glial tumors according to World Health Organisation’s latest classification. The study included 146 patients, 84 (58%) males and 62 (42%) females. The most common pathohistological diagnosis was Glioblastoma multiforme, a grade IV glioma in both females (26%) and males (35%), in total 91 (62%) patients, and the rarest was oligoastrocytoma, in 2 (1%) cases. Kakanj with 29 cases had the highest incidence of glioma in total (0,077%) and the highest incidence in females (0,069%) with 13 cases. Vareš with 5 male cases had the highest incidence (0,114%). The lowest incidence with none cases had Breza and Olovo. The results showed statistically significance in difference in incidence of gliomas in the relation to the region of residence. Analysis of data indicated that there is a significant connection between the occurrence of gliomas and socio – demographic characteristics of patients from Zenica – Doboj Canton.
