Although investigations in the past on the geogr
aphical distribution of goitre revealed endemicities
of the disease in certain areas of North Korea. there
has been little information available in South Korea.
In view to obtaining more information on the
endemicity and geographical distribution of goitre
in South Korea. a survey was undertaken by means
of field investigations as well as by reviewing
hospital records.
The conclusions thereby drawn were summarized
as follows:
1. Comparatively high endemicity of goitre was
observed at hilly sections of South Korea. the most
prominent areas being neighborhoods of Ui-sung.
Kyungsang-puk-do; Hap-chun. Kyungsang-nam-do;
and Bo-sung, Chulla-nam-do.
2. The highest morbidity was seen in the age
group ranging from 26 to 30 years of age.
3. The ratio according with sex difference was 1
male to 5.3 females.
