Abstract

It is important for the fields of child neurology and child public health to clarify the prevalence and incidence rates of West syndrome because this syndrome is a major cause of developmental disorders.However, there have been few reports in Japan on the prevalence rate of West syndrome in the general population.We carried out a population-based survey in Okayama Prefecture, in western Japan in 1994. The population under 2 years of age in Okayama Prefecture in 1994 was 37,085. Six cases of West syndrome were identified. The prevalence rate was 0.16 per 1000.
