Answer

In Sweden, the prevalence rate for sarcoidosis is 64 cases per 100,000 persons. In Japan, the prevalence rate of sarcoidosis is 10-40 cases per 100,000 persons. [9] The prevalence of sarcoidosis is difficult to determine.

Pediatric data from England have demonstrated the prevalence of idiopathic scoliosis to be 1 case per 200 patients aged 6-14 years. [10]

The worldwide prevalence of fibrotic lung diseases is difficult to determine because studies have not been performed.
