The History of the XLH Symposium
Organized by Prof. Agnès Linglart from Hôpital Bicêtre, Prof. Catherine Chaussain from Université Paris Descartes and RVRH, the patient association in France jointly organised the first XLH Symposium held on September 9th 2016 in Paris at the the Imagine Institute. The symposium was attended by more than 130 doctors and researchers from 23 countries.
On September 26th 2018, RVRH organised the 2nd XLH Symposium at the Aigli Zappeion in Athens, Greece. It took place just one day before the 57th annual ESPE meeting. The symposium brought together experts, patients and parents from across the globe to discuss all aspects of XLH; pathophysiology and current research, clinical manifestations, challenging cases and treatment throughout the lifespan.
