Rare Disease Wikipedia

  • Many rare diseases appear early in life
  • About 30 % of children with rare diseases will die before age 5
  • A disease may be considered rare in one part of the world, or in a particular group of people, but still be common in another.
    Comment by VitaminDWiki: Rickets is a rare disease in developed countries (1 in 200,000) but is common in Mongolia (1 in 5)
  • EURORDIS lumps both rare diseases and neglected diseases into a larger category of orphan diseases.
      estimates that as many as 5,000 to 7,000 distinct rare diseases exist, and as much as 6% to 8% of the population of the European Union is affected by one.
