About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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