The affected population consists primarily of young male adults. The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence and cause of SCD in AlQuseir City, using a door-to-door method. The total of inhabitants was 33,285 in Al-Quseir City screened by 3 specialists of neurology. Suspected cases were subjected to full clinical assessment and MRI or CT of the spine.
