Your QuestionMy son was recently diagnosed with Feingold. I was told by his doctor that this syndrome was very rare. So I started doing research online and came across a web page about who had discovered it and when. It said since 2003 only 79 people world wide have been diagnosed with it. My question is do you know how many people have been diagnosed with it now?
