Definitions of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome:

A disorder affecting newborn infants (usually premature) characterized pathologically by the development of a hyaline-like membrane lining the terminal respiratory passages. Extensive atelectasis is attributed to the lack of surfactant. (Dorland, 27th ed) - (Source - Diseases Database)

An acute lung disease of the newborn (especially the premature newborn); lungs cannot expand because of a wetting agent is lacking; characterized by rapid shallow breathing and cyanosis and the formation of a glassy hyaline membrane over the alveoli - (Source - WordNet 2.1)

Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome, or a subtype of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
Source - National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome as a "rare disease".
