How many people die from "hereditary fructose intolerance" per year?

Pathology

In brief: Few

This is easily managed once the diagnosis is made, and a decent pediatrician would spot it by the child becoming sick when fructose is introduced to the diet.
In a death (and these are very rare), the pathologist would recognize a metabolic problem and perhaps be able to make the call after the fact; some may be missed so no one can tell you exactly.
