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