So which is it rare or uncommon?

The number of (pandas) strep affected is as many as 1:200 according to the article. If you follow the definition below it is "uncommon" and not "rare". I think the later must be more true just based on the activity on this forum.

"Very common affects more than 1 in 10 people – ie the risk is 10% or higher. Common affects between 1 in 100 and 1 in 10 people – ie risk is 1% to 10% Uncommon affects between 1 in 1,000 and 1 in 100 people – ie risk is 0.1% to 1% Rare affects between 1 in 10,000 and 1 in 1,000 people – ie risk is 0.01% to 0.1%"

I would think uncommon is the one.  I recall Dr. Swedo making this distinction between rare and uncommon, I think in the documentary "My Kid Is Not Crazy", in a portion of the film showing a panel discussion, and some back and forth between Dr. Swedo and a naysayer also on the panel.
