2. Prevalence

Each lysosomal storage disease is quite rare. However, because there are so many different types, when all the incidences are added up this is quite a common health condition. Currently, around one in 8000 people are born with some form of lysosomal storage disease. However, researchers believe this figure may be lower than the actual incidence rate of lysosomal storage diseases because some people are affected mildly enough that they remain undiagnosed.
