Prevalence and Incidence of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1

Prevalance of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1:

3 per 100,000 up to 20 per 100,000 (NIDDK) ... see also overview of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1.

Prevalance Rate:

approx 1 in 33,333 or 0.00% or 8,160 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "3 per 100,000 up to 20 per 100,000 (NIDDK)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1: Rare Disease

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1, or a subtype of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Ophanet, who are a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when if affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 as a "rare disease". More information about Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 is available from Orphanet

Prevalance of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1:

MEN1 is quite rare, occurring in about 3 to 20 persons out of 100,000. (Source: excerpt from Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1: NIDDK)

Prevelance statistics for Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1:

The following statistics relate to the prevalence of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1:

  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia Type 1 affects about 3-20 people per 100,000 population in the US (NIDDK, NIH, 2002)

About prevalence and incidence statistics:

The term 'prevalence' of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 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.
