Freud found age and sex differences. [11] Patients aged 20-29 years had an incidence of 43%; those aged 30-39 years, 27%; those aged 40-49 years, 21%; those aged 50-59 years, 26%; and those aged 60-69 years, 31%. Patients older than 70 years did not develop PCS. Females had a 28% incidence of PCS, and males had a 15% incidence.
