Rare Diseases

A Rare disease is any disease that influences a very less number of the population. Rare illnesses include rare cancers such as childhood cancers and a few other well-known conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and Huntington’s disease. The vast majority of rare infections will affect far less than this – a few will affect only a handful, or even a single individual. This is the case of thalassemia, anaemia of genetic origin, which is rare in Northern Europe, but it is frequent in the Mediterranean region. Many rare diseases appear early in life. The exact cause for many rare diseases remains unknown. But Environmental factors, viral infections, genetic mutations, diet, smoking, or exposure to chemicals, also can play a role in rare diseases.
