Prevalence and Incidence of Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis: Rare Disease

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

Incidence (annual) of Blastomycosis:

1-2 cases per 100,000 (DBMD) ... see also overview of Blastomycosis.

Incidence Rate:

approx 1 in 100,000 or 0.00% or 2,720 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "1-2 cases per 100,000 (DBMD)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Incidence extrapolations for USA for Blastomycosis:

2,720 per year, 226 per month, 52 per week, 7 per day, 0 per hour, 0 per minute, 0 per second. [Source statistic for calculation: "1-2 cases per 100,000 (DBMD)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Prevalance of Blastomycosis:

1-2 cases per 100,000 population in areas with endemic disease. (Source: excerpt from Blastomycosis: DBMD)

About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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