Neuware - In our etiologic research, we epidemiologists need to leave behind the concepts of 'cohort' study and 'case-control' study and adopt that of the etiologic study as the singular substitute for these. With this sentence, the famous epidemiologist Professor Olli S. Miettinen began his personal re ection on the future of the epidemiology [1]. He sought to highlight the fact that the role of the epidemiologist should be mainly focused on aetiological research. Nevertheless, the widespread idea still exists that epidemiology is limited to purely providing gures and descriptive data on the frequency and distribution of disease. Indeed, it is more than likely that the precise aim of those rst classic epidemiological steps, i. e. , methods essentially based on describing the distri- tion of a given disease, is still not all that well understood by many scientists, let alone the general public. Such descriptions seek to generate hypotheses and afford explanations for key factors (be these risk factors or the presumable causes th- selves), which might justify differences in terms of persons, time or place and, in turn, ultimately serve to develop preventive measures and/or gain quality-adjusted life years. To restrict the goals of epidemiology to activities exclusively concerned with reporting gures or even complex statistical results is a great mistake, one that renders it dif cult to take full advantage of the epidemiologist's true role, which is 'to study disease determinants and to assess the actual impact of factors involved in their development, distribution and dissemination'. 542 pp. Englisch.

Riassunto: The Rare Diseases Epidemiology book is a comprehensive text focused on the rare disease field where both general epidemiological methods and specific methods for low prevalence diseases are discussed. This is the first book to address rare diseases as a public health problem where the epidemiological research constrains are analyzed and at the same time, solutions and also data by rare diseases groups are provided. This book is probably a starting point for developing better future epidemiological research programs on rare diseases, and also research strategies in fields such as health planning and decision making, which will be able to promote not only new knowledge but also capacity building for policy makers. Epidemiology is always mentioned in all rare diseases policy documents as an important topic but a comprehensive book on this discipline applied to rare diseases, had never been written before.
