Abstract

Service providers for children in the state of North Dakota were surveyed to determine the prevalence rate of Rett syndrome (RS). Five patients with definite RS were identified in a population of 203,801 children (98,932 girls) 0-18 years of age yielding a prevalence rate of RS of 1 in 40,760 in North Dakota children. For girls the rate of RS is 1 in 19,786. Similar surveys of other states using comparable modes of ascertainment will be important as points of comparison for prevalence rates of RS.
