Author information

Neurology Service, VA Medical Center, East Orange, NJ 07019.


Annual incidence rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the Shetland Islands have been updated from 1938 to 1986. These reveal a significant decline in MS incidence beginning between 1951 and 1968. No significant change in prevalence, age-specific prevalence, duration of MS, or mean age of the MS population in Shetland has been found since the last survey in 1974, although a trend towards an older MS population was noted.
