Abstract

Objective: to describe the epidemiological and clinical profile of people with intestinal stoma. Methods: documentary research, carried out in a reference center for people with disabilities in northeastern Brazil.

Neoplasia was the main cause of stoma (62.2%) and colostomies corresponded to 84.4%, of which 38.3% were definitive. 60.3% had complications and 54.4% of them corresponded to periestomal dermatitis.
