Mrs Elif Yilmaz Gulec, MD (Istanbul, Turkey) : Cutis Laxa in Turkey : Challenges, Opportunities and Collaborations

Our Cutis Laxa patients are usually referred to us during neonatal period or early infancy. Many are confused with progeria, a rarer but more famous syndrome, before admission.

Cutis Laxa needs a multidisciplinary approach, as soon as the diagnosis is made, the patient is referred to screening for possible accompanying organ disorders.

Since the molecular defects determines organ pathologies and prognosis, molecular diagnosis is made as soon as possible.
