SummaryMalignant tumors of the eye and its adnexa (C69) are rare malignancies. To date state statistics in Russia (Form No. 7) have data only for estimating the incidence of the population. These data, at our proposal, were included in Form No. 7 only since 2011. In 2018 for the first time we were able to have data on the incidence of the population by age separately for men and women but only in Russia as a whole. The estimation of rates of a 1- and 5-year patient survival for this pathology is carried out only by us in the North-West Federal Region of Russia, where, in February 2019, we have formed the first Population-based Cancer Registry (PCR) in Russia at the Federal Region’s level with a total database of more than 1 million cases. Previously similar work was conducted on the materials of the Population-based Cancer Registry of St. Petersburg.For the first time this work presents the features of data on changes in the structure of oncological pathology of the eye and its ad-nexa (C69) and estimations of a 5-year survival by age. Unfortunately the Office of the Federal State Statistics Service classifies the pathology of the eye (C69) as a group of “other malignant tumors” and does not publish mortality data. At the same time, using the PCR database, it must be borne in mind that index accuracy (the ratio of a number of deaths to a number of sick for the first time in life) according to malignant tumors of the eye (C69) is about 0.50% and is constantly decreasing.
