Atlanto-Axial Fusion is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Atlanto-Axial Fusion, or a subtype of Atlanto-Axial Fusion, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
The term 'prevalence' of Atlanto-Axial Fusion usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Atlanto-Axial Fusion at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Atlanto-Axial Fusion refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Atlanto-Axial Fusion diagnosed each year.
Hence, these two statistics types can differ:
a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence,
but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence.
For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
