strange statistics

August 5, 2008 at 1:44 pm

The statistics given to Pam H are most unusual.
The incidence of GBS worldwide is 1.7 per 100,000 annually.
I am astonished to think that for CIDP it would be 100 per 100,000 annually about 60 times that of GBS!
The info in the UK handbook/online info has been vetted by the Medical Advisory Board. Its membership includes Prof Richard Hughes (London), who wrote the 1st edition of the handbook and Prof Hugh Widdison (Glasgow). Both are members of the GBS/CIDP Foundation medical advisory board too and are recognised worldwide as being experts in GBS and CIDP.;)
