How Common is RTS?


RTS is a rare disorder, and the exact number of cases worldwide is not known. There have been a few hundred cases of RTS reported in the medical literature. RTS is not specific to any once race or nationality. However, because it is a recessive disorder, consanguineous (related by blood) families have an increased risk of disease.
