    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this investigation was to study the epidemiologic and genetic aspects of mental subnormality (MS) in Assiut Governorate, representing the Egyptian population.

    The sample comprised 3000 randomly selected subjects from three localities : one urban (Assiut City) and two adjacent rural villages.

    Age-matched controls were chosen for comparison.

    The Stanford-Binet test was administered to each individual.

    During history-taking special attention was paid to consanguinity and categorization on a genetic basis.

    The results revealed 116 cases with MS, showing an overall prevalence of 3.9%, which varied in the three locations : 3.4% in Assiut City, and 3.8% and 4.4% in the two rural locations.
