Early diagnosis and management of newborns and infants with inherited metabolic disorders is essential to the affected children’s outcome. However the quick and correct recognition of specific inherited metabolic disease in neonates is a challenge for neonatologists. It may be diffi cult, especially in critically ill neonates, to distinguish between the primary genetically encoded metabolic disorder and the secondary metabolic disturbances resulting in similar clinical picture.
This practical course is run by an experienced team of paediatricians, neonatologists, molecular biologists and biochemists specialised in metabolic medicine, who already contributed substantially to the understanding of metabolic disorders in childhood. The two and a half days course includes lectures and seminars for 35 participants. The course is aimed at paediatricians with about 2-3 years clinical experience in the neonatology field.
