The prevalence of multiple sclerosis in the sanitary district of Vélez-Malaga, southern Spain.
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.
