Rare Diseases affect less than 1 in 2,000 people. There are about 8,000 rare diseases. In Europe, there are 30 million rare patients of whom, according to Orphanet estimates, about 2 million live in Italy. The word 'rare' must therefore not be misleading, because the community of rare patients is big. The many rare diseases that exist are different from each other: for the different ages at which they can arise, for the type of disability they cause, for the knowledge or not of the cause, for the possibility or not of preventing them, for the availability or not of a care.
