    Article - En anglais


    To determine the prevalence of rheumatic diseases in Han Chinese in north and south China.


    Samples of 4192 adults in the Beijing (north) and 5057 in the Shantou (south) areas, based on village administration registers, were studied.

    The same questionnaire was administered by doctors who then examined those with rheumatic symptoms.

    One observer (QYZ) took part in both studies.


    The prevalence of definite rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was 0.34% (95% CI ; 0. 20-0.51) in the north and 0.32% (0.16-0.47) in the south.

    Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) was noted in 0.26% of both samples (95% CI ; 0.11-0.42 north and 0.14-0.40 south).
