Diagnostic Dilemmas Session
Sunday June 17 | 3:00-4:30PM | Gold Room
Organized and moderated by: Sofia Douzgou and Peter Krawitz
The workshop focuses on complex cases with facial dysmorphic features, included undiagnosed and diagnosed cases which are particularly educational and demonstrate new clinical information. Starting Saturday, interested attendees can submit cases to the ESHG 2018 Dysmo supported by NGP Forum. To access this forum, please approach the FDNA booth (#338) to receive the password. You can also bring your case in any format to Gold Room starting at 2:30 before the session begins. All participants are invited to use the ESHG 2018 Dysmo supported by NGP FORUM to post comments for each case to be discussed during the session.
- Download Face2Gene ahead of time for free at the iOS or Google Play store. Follow the instructions to access the ESHG 2018 Dysmo supported by NGP forum. Retrieve the access code at the Face2Gene booth (#338).

NAME THIS SYNDROME
The Disease Recognition Game
Get started with NAME THIS SYNDROME by visiting us at booth #338. Use the given patient information and clues collected from partner booths to determine a potential diagnosis for your patient, with the help of Face2Gene. Once you have gathered all of your clues from partners, return to the Face2Gene booth to retrieve your final clue, make a diagnosis and collect your prize (while supplies last)!
