Rare diseases are characterized by a large number of broad and diverse disorders and symptoms, majority having identified genetic origin. Frequently the patients with rare disorders have been on a diagnostic odyssey going from one specialist to another to find an answer. As rare as rare diseases are, it’s even rarer to find a doctor who is willing to invest the energy needed to investigate, research and care for rare disease patients.
In honor of Rare Disease Day, which raises awareness of rare diseases and their impact on patients and families, a Romanian multidisciplinary team wish to organize on February 24th a virtual scientific symposium named “Together for patients with rare diseases” to revisit clinical cases and to try putting genetic puzzle pieces together and to share their experiences with other specialists.
