Share |

Advanced Course on Rare Dyslipidaemia and Atherosclerosis - Importance of Personalized Medicine and Differential Diagnosis

Date: Friday, October 19, 2018

Venue: Bassini Hospital, University of Milan, Via M. Gorki 50, 20092, Cinisello, Balsamo, Milan, Italy.

Aim: The aim of this course is to examine other, rare genetic disorders of lipid metabolism including ß-sitosterolemia; cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis, lysosomal acid lipase deficiency, disorders of high density lipoprotein and familial hypocholesterolemias. While the prevalence of these individual disorders is low, collectively they are important and the busy specialized practitioner will encounter patients with these conditions. Lipidologists need to be familiar with their diagnosis and treatment as they may be associated with high morbidity and mortality. The objective of this course is to review practical aspects of evaluation and management, and to describe real clinical cases of these disorders.

Organized by: SISA Foundation, Italian Society of Atherosclerosis

Endorsed by: European Atherosclerosis Society

Course language: Italian

Audience numbers: 25-35 persons
