How many people have FOP?

A:

It is estimated that FOP affects about 3,300 people worldwide, or approximately one in two million people. Such statistics may be better grasped by the following example: if a large football stadium holds 100,000 fans, one would need to fill nearly 20 football stadiums to find one person who has FOP. At the present time, researchers are aware of approximately 700 people throughout the world who have FOP.
