The decline in incidence of acute intussusception in childhood in north-east Scotland.
  1. J E Pollet,

    The records have been studied of 77 cases of acute intussusception in children which occurred in Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, and Banffshire during the 10 years 1967--76. There has been a decrease in age-specific incidence of about a third since a previous study in the same region was carried out between 1950 and 1959. The decline in rates is greater for rural areas than for Aberdeen City and it is more marked for girls than for boys.
