Childhood Interstitial lung diseases

  • Details

Organisers : Prof Fabio Mudella, Lumbardi, Samia Nasr
Faculty Disclosure
This course provides an overview of the field of childhood Interstitial Lung Diseases (Childs). Participants will learn which diagnostic procedures should be applied based on given clinical circumstances, and what difficulties can arise in Child diagnosis. Special emphasis will be given to HRCT courses, as these typically guide the diagnosis of many Childs; this will be accompanied by sessions on Child -pathology. Therapy remains a challenging aspect of treating many Childs, so this course will provide participants with insight into the pros and cons of specific Child treatments. Interdisciplinary Child board discussions will be held between specialists and course participants, and course attendees will have the opportunity to bring their own challenging cases and discuss them with leading experts. Further, there will be a dedicated discussion session on the impact of comorbidities on the clinical course of Child treatment.
