Since little is known about the prevalence of multiple sclerosis (MS) in Spain, we undertook an epidemiologic study to ascertain the prevalence of MS in the Sanitary District of Velez-Malaga, close to the city of Malaga, in southern Spain.
The crude prevalence rate of MS in Velez-Malaga was 53 per 100,000, twice as high as the prevalence previously reported in both the city and province of Malaga.
The MS prevalence in the Sanitary District of Vélez-Malaga is similar to that in Sicily and in Cyprus.
