COURSE DESCRIPTION

 
  Misdiagnosis of Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) results in late diagnosis and the late start of treatment, which has significant consequences on long-term outcomes. This gap usually results in confusing symptoms with other conditions, most notably trying to address symptoms directly and therefore delaying actual diagnosis and treatment, or referring the patient to the wrong pediatric specialties causing further delays in the condition’s management chain.  
     
  Language: English ● Duration: 30 minutes followed by questions from the audience
