Malonic aciduria: Rare Disease

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

About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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