Abstract:

Eighty random patients were examined over a 9-month-period to determine the incidence of asymptomatic haemorrhoids at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH). The incidence of asymptomatic was found to be 21% all being first degree haemorrhoids, while in the age group 50 years and over, 29% had asymptomatic haemorrhoids. The mean age calculated as 44.3 years (+/- 18.3), with no statistical difference between the ages of the two sexes. Males however had a significant greater incidence of asymptomatic haemorrhoids than females.
