Advanced Courses in Rare Lipid Disease 2019-2020
Share |

These four, stand-alone, 1-day courses took place 2019 - 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland; Stockholm, Sweden; St Petersburg, Russia; and Berlin, Germany. The majority of the lectures were given in the respective national language.

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


The Swiss edition of the Course took place, November 23, 2019 at the University Hospital Zurich, Kleiner Hörsaal OST, HOER B 5, and the organiser was Professor Arnold von Eckardstein


The Swedish edition of the Course took place on, December 6, 2019, in Stockholm. The organiser was Professor Paolo Parini.


The Russian edition of the Course took place, February 23, 2020, in St Petersburg. The organiser was Professor Marat Ezhov.


The German edition of the Course took place, February 22, 2020, in Berlin. The organiser was Professor Ulf Landmesser.
