Incidence of Neurological Disorders on the Rise

A review of data available on most of the common neurological disorders in the United States finds that the prevalence of Multiple Sclerosis// and Alzheimer’s diseases had increased since 1982.

The study found nearly one out of 1,000 people have multiple sclerosis (MS). "Our estimate of MS prevalence is about 50 percent higher than a comprehensive review from 1982. Whether this reflects improvements in diagnosis or whether incidence is actually increasing deserves further study," said one of the study authors Deborah Hirtz, MD, with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the National Institutes of Health, and a member of the American Academy of Neurology.

The rate of Alzheimer’s disease was also up substantially from the past estimate, with the study finding 67 out of 1,000 elderly Americans with Alzheimer’s disease. The authors say these findings merit further research. As for the rate of traumatic brain injuries, the study found 101 out of every 100,000 Americans have a traumatic brain injury each year. That’s a 50-percent drop compared to the past estimate. The authors say the decrease likely reflects more restrictive hospital admission criteria, but improvements in motor vehicle safety may have had an effect.

The study found 183 out of every 100,000 people suffer a stroke each year, and one in 100 has had a stroke in the past. In addition, the study found nearly 10 out of 1,000 elderly Americans have Parkinson’s disease, while nearly four out of every 100,000 Americans have ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Nearly five out of every 100,000 have a new onset spinal cord injury each year. As for childhood neurological disorders, the study found nearly six out of every 1,000 children have autism, with two out of every 1,000 children having cerebral palsy.

This review looked at currently available literature, which presented a wide range of estimates for some diseases. For some disorders the best avail
