In the European Union (EU), the prevalence rates show 4-5 cases per 100,000 persons. The incidence rate is about 0.6 cases per 100,000 persons per year. [16]

In the United Kingdom, the crude prevalence of MSA, including all probable and possible cases, is 3.3 per 100,000 population. [17]

In Iceland, the incidence is 0.6 per 100,000 and prevalence is 3.1 per 100,000. [18]

In Japan, the prevalence is 13.1 per 100,000 individuals. The mean annual incidence is 0.68. [19]
