progeria Rare diseases terms are either (1) terms for which information requests have been made to the Office of Rare Diseases Research, the Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center, or the National Human Genome Research Institute; or (2) diseases that have been suggested as being rare. The purpose of the Rare Diseases and Related Terms list is to distribute information; although the list is updated regularly, it should not be used as a reference or guarantee that a condition is rare.
The prevalence of a rare disease is usually an estimate and may change over time. A rare (or orphan) disease is generally considered to have a prevalence of fewer than 200,000 affected individuals in the United States. Certain diseases with 200,000 or more affected individuals may be included in this list if certain subpopulations of people who have the disease are equal to the prevalence standard for rare diseases
