  1. Acute encephalopathy and seizure rates in children under age two years in Oregon and Washington State.

    Article - En anglais

    A surveillance network was established in Oregon and Washington state to identify cases of certain neurologic illnesses during a one-year period (August 1,1987 to July 31,1988) among children 1-24 months of age.

    Reported here are the observed case occurrence rates and findings from capture-recapture analyses used to predict rates that would have been observed had ascertainment been complete.

    The network consisted of a hospital component involving 98% of all eligible facilities, a provider component involving 93% of all eligible pediatricians and neurologists, and a research staff component of record abstractors.

    Of 3,876 potential cases reported, 626 met the study criteria.
