What a pleasure to meet again, especially after the Covid years that kept us away from each other!
The 6th Cutis Laxa Days were a huge success !!
It was the first time so many patients (23) gathered together;
the first time so many countries (11) were represented;
and the first time also that so many doctors and researchers interested in Cutis Laxa attended the Conference.
It is always very difficult to account for what happened during four days, in the most accurate way possible, especially when they were so intense : many moments of strong emotion, much information shared, much joy, much fun, but sadness too ………
Photos are witness to all this, what Cutis Laxa Days represent.

In the beautiful historical buildings of Ghent University, participants were more numerous than ever before. We were able to organize this symposium thanks to funding from Ghent University, EADV, ERN-Skin, FWO and the European Programme EJPRD.
It was really moving to see such a crowded room !
Moderated by Paul De Brem, scientific journalist who has faithfully supported us since the Days in Annecy, this event allowed researchers and health professionals coming from Europe, Turkey and the USA to share with us the most recent information on Cutis Laxa.
