Bacilary disentery causes around 650 million infections and more than 1 million deaths in the world every year. Two thirds of both infections and deaths are among children younger than 10. Bacilary disentery is mainly spreads by direct or indirect contact, but water- and food-borne outbreaks are not rare. The paper presents epidemiologic overview of bacilary disentery in Belgrade between 2007. and 2016. Based on annual reports of prevention, containment and elimination of infectious diseases, in the observed period there's been a 15039 registered cases of intestinal infectious diseases with initial rate of incidence 90,62/100.000. Of all intestinal diseases cases, bacilary disentery represents 1,22% (185). The average rate of illness caused by bacilary disentery is 1,16 per 100.000 people. The condition is registered throughout the year, with a peak incidence in the late summer and early autumn months. It affects people of all age groups, but is more common in preschool children and men. Of all bacilary disentery cases, only 30% were registered as a part of epidemics, the most common type of contact. On the whole, the incidence of bacilary disentery has a declining tedency.
