SERIES 3

Addressing the Misdiagnosis of MPS in Children Education Case Studies Series

The Misdiagnosis of MPS in Children Education Case Studies Series is part of Excellence in Pediatrics' Spot the Early Signs programme, targeting to minimise delays in the diagnosis of MPS by eliminating wrong referrals and confusion of paediatric specialists caused by other specialty diseases resembling symptoms of MPS.

The Case Study Series follows on from two series of webinars run by EIP in 2018 and 2019 targeted to educate general paediatricians, paediatric rheumatologists, paediatric endocrinologists, ENT specialists and orthopedists (as specialists who often see patients with joint problems) about the signs of MPS. The basis of the background knowledge has already been provided by the 8 webinars already organised and all are recorded and are available as free-to-view videos to watch Series 1 here and Series 2 here.

Series 3 now build on this to focus fully on practical case studies that offers the opportunity to connect the theory with the practice allowing viewers to challenge their acquired knowledge and also gives them tangible paradigms on when to suspect, what to check and how to confirm.

The premise of Series 3 is that the misdiagnosis of 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; (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.

All webinars in Series 3, as with all past webinar in the preceding series, are free to attend and a certificate of attendance will be provided by the Excellence in Pediatrics Institute for those who will attend a session.
