2018: Advanced Courses in Rare Lipid Disorders 2018
Share |

EAS is pleased to announce the Society's endorsement of Advanced Courses on the topic of Rare Lipid Disorders. These four, stand-alone, 1-day courses will take place autumn 2018 in Barcelona, Spain; Lyon, France; Berlin Germany; and Milan, Italy. The majority of the lectures will be given in the respective national language.

The aim of the courses is to examine 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 the courses is to review practical aspects of evaluation and management, and to describe real clinical cases of these disorders.


The Spanish edition of the Course takes place on Thursday September 27, 2018 at the University of Barcelona, Campus de Bellvitge, Hospitalet de Llobregat, and the organiser is Professor Xavier Pintó.
