Flynn-Aird syndrome is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Flynn-Aird syndrome, or a subtype of Flynn-Aird syndrome, 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 Flynn-Aird syndrome as a "rare disease". More information about Flynn-Aird syndrome is available from Orphanet
The term 'prevalence' of Flynn-Aird syndrome usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Flynn-Aird syndrome at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Flynn-Aird syndrome refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Flynn-Aird syndrome 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.
