About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Neurofibromatosis-2. The term 'prevalence' of Neurofibromatosis-2 usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Neurofibromatosis-2 at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Neurofibromatosis-2 refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Neurofibromatosis-2 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.
