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.

Abstract

Aim: This study assessed the prevalence of WT in Africa and Asia as it relates to smoking index and malignant tumors of the parotid gland.
Materials and Methods: Peer-reviewed articles found on Google Scholar, Scopus, EMBASE, Web of Science, and PubMed Central were systematically reviewed.
Results: Significant higher prevalence of WT and smoking index (intensity and prevalence of smoking) were observed in Asia than in Africa (p= 0.003 and p=0.001, respectively). A significant direct relationship was observed between the frequency of WT and smoking index (p= 0.001) while a significant inverse relationship between the prevalence of WT and malignant tumors of the parotid gland (p= 0.039) was also observed. In Africa, South Africa and Morocco had the highest prevalence of WT (13.4% and 11.5%, respectively) while Tanzania and Nigeria had the lowest prevalence of WT (3.6% and 0.0%, respectively). In Asia, Taiwan and South Korea had the highest prevalence of WT (46.6% and 38.8%, respectively) while Iran and Pakistan had the lowest prevalence of WT (7.6% and 3.5%, respectively).
Conclusion: This review revealed that the high prevalence of WT in Asia could be due to a high smoking index in the continent. It suggests that the incidence of WT could be used as an alternative tool for monitoring the effect of smoking across countries.

Keywords: Africa; Asia; smoking index; Turkey; warthin tumor
