COURSE 2

Joint and Bone, Otorhinolaryngological, and Endocrine Manifestations of MPS

Misdiagnosis of Metabolic Disorders 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; (a) trying to address symptoms directly and therefore delaying actual diagnosis and treatment, or (b) referring the patient to the wrong pediatric specialties causing further delays in the condition’s management chain.


The course is free to attend and a certificate of attendance will be provided by the Excellence in Pediatrics Institute for those who will attend all modules of the course. Visit the links to each module below and register to access the recorded videos.
