Prevalence and Incidence of Ramon Syndrome

Ramon Syndrome: Rare Disease

Ramon Syndrome is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Ramon Syndrome, or a subtype of Ramon 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 Ramon Syndrome as a "rare disease". More information about Ramon Syndrome is available from Orphanet

About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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