How rare is Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy?

We were unable to locate information about the exact incidence or prevalence of Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy (DHRD) in the available medical literature. This information may be difficult to obtain due to the presence of similar characteristics and symptoms in other conditions (such as age-related macular degeneration) and the wide range of presentations and severity in individuals with DHRD.
