THIS IS A SATELLITE SYMPOSIUM
Genetic metabolic diseases, rare disorders with a wide variety of clinical phenotypes, are commonly associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Patients with acute and acute-on-chronic presentations show up in pediatric and adult emergency departments, often in life-threatening circumstances. In some pediatric cases, the diagnoses are already known because the patients have been identified through the newborn screening process or by a specialist. However, most metabolic diseases are not included in the newborn screening panel, and the diagnosis is usually missed or unknown in late-onset cases. This symposium provides emergency medicine clinicians with a practical approach to identify recognizable pediatric and adult metabolic conditions, as well as guidelines for administering first-line treatment that can be life-saving. The interactive nature of the workshop provides the opportunity to apply learned principles to real patient cases.
