Mollaret meningitis is thought to be rare. However, recent research and studies have suggested that it may be more common than initially thought. Because of its rarity, it is difficult to estimate the exact number of individuals affected by this condition. In 1994, one article stated that only 50 cases of this condition had been reported in the scientific literature. Another article (2010) mentioned 58 cases. Likely there are other cases that have not been reported in the medical literature.
