  1. Familial clustering of multiple sclerosis ina northern Swedish rural district.

    Article - En anglais

    A small rural district in the most northerly province of Sweden was found to have a very high occurrence of multiple sclerosis.

    A total of 12 patients with multiple sclerosis among 4744 inhabitants were identified (five females, seven males), corresponding to a prevalence of 253/100 000.

    Many of the patients were related and a further 21 cases with multiple sclerosis (14 females, seven males), mostly living in the neighbouring area, have family ties to the district.

    A genealogical investigation showed that 22 of the 33 patients identified had ties of kinship and thus, to our knowledge, the largest aggregation of multiple sclerosis in a family is presented.
