Majority of rare diseases at present have none or little effective procedures of diagnosis & treatment, which can be partly attributed to absence of funding toward researches on rare disease pathogenesis and lack of representative patients. Rare neurological disease are among major types of rare diseases with ineffective diagnoses and treatment options. According to WHO, 1 in 10 individuals are expected to be diagnosed with rare neurological disorder in their lifetime. Brain diseases are considered to be one of the major determinants of the neurological disease prevalence worldwide, with early intervention being the only key to prevent or curtail long-term morbidity and relevant healthcare costs.

However, diagnosis of rare neurological diseases entails several barricades including lack of intelligence and awareness about such diseases within the common medical community. This has further resulted into delayed diagnosis, and sometimes misdiagnosis, as highlighted in the book about rare diseases compiled by European Organization for Rare Diseases (EURORDIS), co-funded by European Commission. According to the publication, patients suffering from rare neurological diseases experience challenges in accessing treatment services on the coattails of lack of referral.

Spreading awareness about these diseases along with increasing their visibility are key initiatives taken by various governments worldwide for speeding up diagnostic processes and provide affected families with access to proper counselling and treatment options.
