  1. Epidemiology of congenital hydrocephalus in Utah, 1940-1979 : report of an iatrogenically related "epidemic".

    Article - En anglais

    As part of an epidemiological study of congenital hydrocephalus in Utah, we focused on the effect of ascertainment sources and temporal variability to further delineate the causes of this relatively common, handicapping birth defect.

    The incidence and distribution of 994 reported cases diagnosed prior to age 6 months, and born to Utah residents from 1940 to 1979, were analyzed.

    Data were ascertained by exaamination of multiple sources, e.g., 982,066 birth, 11,161 fetal death, and 248,208 death certificates, and selected hospital and clinic records.

    Of the 934 reported cases, 700 met our selection criteria for congenital hydrocephalus, which results in a crude incidence of 0.70 per 1,000 live and stillbirths.
