We critique published incidences for fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) and present new estimates of the incidence of FAS and the prevalence of alcohol-related neurodevelopmental disorder (ARND). We first review criteria necessary for valid estimation of FAS incidence. Estimates for three population-based studies that best meet these criteria are reported with adjustment for underascertainment of highly exposed cases. As a result, in 1975 in Seattle, the incidence of FAS can be estimated as at least… Expand

Paper Mentions

Incidence and prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder by sex and age group in Alberta, Canada.
TLDR
This study suggests new incidence and prevalence of FASD, which are higher than what has been commonly used (1%), and its variations among sex and age groups. Expand
Counting fetal alcohol spectrum disorder in Australia: the evidence and the challenges.
TLDR
Accurate measurement of FASD prevalence is crucial to inform policy, resource and service development in the areas of health, education, justice and community and there is a need for consensus on the collection and best use of data. Expand
Identifying maternal self-reported alcohol use associated with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
TLDR
These new data may facilitate early identification of offspring who may be most in need of early intervention, namely those born with FASD. Expand
Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: Diagnostic update
TLDR
Much progress has been made since the Canadian Paediatric Society’s position paper on fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) was first published in 2002, but the prevalence of FASD in Canada is unknown and formal diagnostic approaches include those described by the Institute of Medicine and the 4-Digit Diagnostic Code. Expand
28 – Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
The neurobehavioral consequences of FAS are the most frequent debilitating feature of the disorder, and this disorder is completely preventable through the avoidance of alcohol by women who are pregnant. Expand
FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME IN THE CANADIAN CORRECTIONS SYSTEM
TLDR
Corrections systems reported few diagnosed cases of FAS and multiple unmet needs to screen, identify, and manage offenders with FAS, with the potential to decrease recidivism. Expand
The epidemiology of fetal alcohol syndrome and partial FAS in a South African community.
TLDR
A high rate of FAS and PFAS was again documented in this community, and it has increased, suggesting that other communities in the Western Cape Province of South Africa also have high rates and programs for prevention are needed. Expand
Prevalence of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders in 4 US Communities
TLDR
Estimated prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders among first-graders in 4 US communities ranged from 1.1% to 5.0% using a conservative approach, which may represent more accurate US prevalence estimates than previous studies but may not be generalizable to all communities. Expand
Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder in Israel.
TLDR
Evaluating professionals' experience, awareness and knowledge of FASD in Israel and their awareness of maternal consumption of alcohol and the increase in alcohol consumption in Israel found that professionals' awareness of its potential damage is limited. Expand
Under-reporting of foetal alcohol spectrum disorders: an analysis of hospital episode statistics
TLDR
It would be expected that the North West and North East regions, known to have higher levels of alcohol harm would haveHigher levels of FASD-related conditions, however, this was not reflected in the incidence of such conditions, suggesting under-reporting. Expand

Incidence of fetal alcohol syndrome and economic impact of FAS-related anomalies.
TLDR
FAS-related mental retardation alone may account for as much as 11% of the annual cost for all mentally retarded institutionalized residents in the United States, which is about 100 times federal funding for FAS research necessary to develop cost-effective early identification and prevention strategies. Expand
Epidemiology of fetal alcohol syndrome among American Indians of the Southwest.
TLDR
The epidemiological features of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome were examined among American Indians in the southwestern United States, and the pattern of age‐specific prevalence indicates an increase over the past fifteen years. Expand
Significant Determinants of Susceptibility to Alcohol Teratogenicity a
TLDR
Two studies in different samples, using different analytic strategies to examine susceptibility to different adverse outcomes are presented, consistent with the susceptibility hypothesis and have potentially important implications for public health and clinical approaches to prevention. Expand
An update on incidence of FAS: FAS is not an equal opportunity birth defect.

  • Neurotoxicology and teratology
  • 1995
TLDR
An examination of U.S. and European studies suggests that the major factor associated with FAS is low SES rather than racial background, which is more than 20 times higher in the United States than in other countries. Expand
A preliminary follow-up of 8 children diagnosed fetal alcohol syndrome in infancy.
TLDR
Eight children, who were given a diagnosis of FAS at birth or within the first eight months of life and who were available for follow-up in 1980, constituted the sample for the present clinical study. Expand
A revised conservative estimate of the incidence of FAS and its economic impact.

  • Medicine

  • 1991
TLDR
A new analysis of the incidence of fetal alcohol syndrome and its economic impact based on prospectively gathered data of consecutive pregnancies puts the overall rate in the western world at 0.33 cases per 1000 and estimates the incremented annual cost of treating this disorder at $74.6 million. Expand
A fetal alcohol syndrome screening tool.
TLDR
The screening tool is effective at differentiating children with and without FAS as diagnosed by a single dysmorphologist (S.K.C) at the University of Washington FAS Clinic and assessment of diagnostic interrater agreement between trained dysmorphologists and testing in other clinic populations will be needed to assess the tool's external validity.

Failure to Recognize Fetal Alcohol Syndrome in Newborn Infants
TLDR
The diagnosis of fetal alcohol syndrome did not appear in the medical records of any of these infants despite the fact that the mothers' obstetric records included a history of alcohol abuse during pregnancy, highlighting the importance of good communication between obstetric and pediatric medical staff at this hospital. Expand
Clinical profile and prevalence of fetal alcohol syndrome in an isolated community in British Columbia.
TLDR
The finding that two thirds of the children with FAS/FAE were mentally retarded points to a major health and education problem. Expand
Fetal alcohol syndrome in adolescents and adults.
TLDR
After puberty, the faces of patients with fetal alcohol syndrome or fetal alcohol effects were not as distinctive, and patients tended to remain short and microcephalic, although their weight was somewhat closer to the mean. Expand
