Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: To make a demographic analysis of patients operated on because of skin cancer in the last ten years in the Diyarbakir region of Turkey. Information was mapped related to age, gender, localization, grade, and size of skin cancers other than melanoma.
Material and Methods: A retrospective examination was made of patient data in the computerized information system from the last ten years. Age and gender of the relevant patients, tumour diagnosis, size, and localization were recorded.
Results: From the archive scan, the data of 733 patients were retrieved. The diagnosis was basal cell carcinoma (BCC) in 540 cases, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in 154, and basosquamous cell carcinoma (BSCC) in 32. BCC was determined more in males (M/F:280/260), localization was mostly in the nasal region and it was seen most in the 60-70 years age range. SCC was diagnosed more in males (M/F:92/62) in the 70-80 years age group, and the most common localization was on the cheek. BSCC was observed more often in females (M/F:14/18).
Conclusion: Diyarbakir is geographically located in the South-east Anatolian region of Turkey, those who live there are exposed to long hours of intense sunlight in certain months of the year. In this region, BCC and SCC were seen more in males and BSCC was determined more in females. When it is considered that UV exposure is significant in the etiology of skin cancers, it can be concluded that characteristics change according to geographic region and epidemiological characteristics (skin type, genetic factors, regional working conditions).

Keywords:  Basal cell carcinoma; basosquamous cell carcinoma; squamous cell carcinoma
