This page presents a variety of statistics about Adrenoleukodystrophy.
The term 'prevalence' of Adrenoleukodystrophy usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Adrenoleukodystrophy at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Adrenoleukodystrophy refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Adrenoleukodystrophy 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.
