Multipel skleros – hög prevalens i Värmland?: En epidemiologisk studie

Multiple sclerosis : High prevalence in the County of Värmland? An epidemiological research (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att beräkna preliminär prevalens för sjukdomen multipel skleros (MS) i Värmland, med prevalensdag 21 december 2002, och jämföra den med andra prevalensstudier i Sverige. Utifrån patientjournaler vid länets sjukvårdsinrättningar noterades basala och medicinska data på ett registreringsformulär. För klassificering av MS har Poser ́s kriterielista tillämpats och granskningen av journaler har utförts av specialist neurologer. Prevalensen för definite/probable MS i Värmland, baserad på siffror som var insamlade augusti 2004, var 151/105 (95% CI 136-165), för kvinnor var prevalensen 211/105 (95% CI 187-235) och för män 89/105 (95% CI 73-105), vilket innebär att MS var 2,37 gånger vanligare för kvinnor. Vid jämförelse av den preliminära prevalens för Värmland och Västerbotten visade det sig att Värmland hade nästan lika hög prevalens och kan liksom Västerbotten betecknas som högriskområde för MS.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to estimate the preliminary prevalence of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the County of Värmland, with prevalence date 21 December 2002, and to compare this with other prevalence studies in Sweden. The clinical data of the patients were collected from medical files at the medical care facilities in the county. For classification of MS the criteria by Poser were used. The diagnoses were scrutinised by neurologists. Based on the collected data, August 2004 the prevalence of definite/probable MS in Värmland is 151/105 (95% CI 136-165), for women 211/105 (95% CI 187-235), for men 89/105 (95% CI 73-105), resulting in a female to male ratio of 2,37. When comparing these results with prevalence numbers from Västerbotten County in the north of Sweden and Gothenburg respectively, our prevalence number reaches the level of that from Västerbotten, indicating that Värmland, as well as Västerbotten, is a high risk zone for MS.
