Knowledge of the natural history of these diseases is optimized for creating records for some of them. Researchers are increasingly working through networks in order to share the results of their research and advancing more efficiently. They will be raised more hopes with perspectives offered by the laws through government agencies in the field of rare diseases.

Patients affected by these diseases face similar difficulties in their quest for a diagnosis, relevant information and proper guidance to qualified professionals. Specific questions are also raised on access to quality health care, social support and general medical, effective link between hospitals and health centers as well as in professional and social integration. People affected by rare diseases are more vulnerable psychological, social, economic and cultural point of view. These difficulties could be overcome by the existence of appropriate legislation. Due to lack of effective scientific and medical knowledge, many patients are not diagnosed. Their diseases remain unidentified. These people are those who have more difficulties in receiving appropriate support.
