Toxemia: Rare Disease
Toxemia is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of

(NIH). This means that Toxemia, or a subtype of Toxemia,
affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

About prevalence and incidence statistics:
The term 'prevalence' of Toxemia usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Toxemia at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Toxemia refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Toxemia 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.
