The prevalence of multiple sclerosis in sicily italy 1. monreale city


, : The prevalence of multiple sclerosis in sicily italy 1. monreale city. Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health 35(2): 114-117

The prevalence of probable multiple sclerosis in Monreale city, close to the university city of Palermo, Sicily, is at least 43/100,000. If the possible multiple sclerosis patient is included, it is 47/100,000. This prevalence is not significantly different from that found in Enna City, 53/100,000. The prevalence in Sicily and no doubt in Italy has in the past been seriously underestimated. This confirms the need for thorough studies of small populations if many patients are not to be overlooked in a prevalence survey.
