Metabolic myopathies – challenges and solutions / Split, Croatia on May 16-18, 2024
The Recordati Rare Diseases Foundation organizes the course “Metabolic myopathies – Challenges and Solutions” which will take place from 16 to 18 May 2024 in Split, Croatia.
Early diagnosis and management of patients with metabolic myopathies is essential for the patient’s outcome. However, the quick and correct recognition of specific inherited metabolic diseases is frequently a challenge both for paediatricians and specialists dealing with adult patients. It may be especially difficult in critically ill patients, patients with multi-organ involvement, or neonates and small infants. It requires a multidisciplinary, contemporary, and rational approach to distinguish between a primary genetically encoded metabolic disorder, secondary metabolic, or other muscle disorders resulting in a similar clinical picture, particularly in the light of permanently growing number of inherited diseases affecting the muscle and novel diagnostic options.
This practical course is run by an experienced team of neurologists, paediatricians, geneticists, molecular biologists, and biochemists specialised in neuromuscular diseases and metabolic medicine, who already contributed substantially to the understanding of metabolic myopathies. This three-day interactive course includes lectures, seminars, case reports, debates, and patients’ stories.
The course is targeted both to healthcare professionals who are new in the field and to those who would like to refresh their knowledge with a variety of new information on metabolic myopathies.
Participants will have the opportunity to present challenging diagnostic, patient management, and/or treatment cases. Candidates are therefore strongly encouraged to upload an abstract with their online application.
The deadline for registration is the 24th of March 2024.
