Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome, or a subtype of Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
The term 'prevalence' of Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Jaffe-Lichtenstein 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.
