On Wednesday October 7th at 15:00 – 16:00 CET an Endo-ERN webinar about “Wolfram syndrome” is organised. The Endo-ERN webinar will be held by Prof Timothy Barrett from University Hospitals Birmingham in the United Kingdom.
Wolfram syndrome is a rare monogenic form of diabetes and neurodegeneration, with a prevalence of about 1 in every 150 children with diabetes. Classically it presents with childhood onset diabetes, optic atrophy, diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus. In recent years, a much wider spectrum of disease has been recognised with neonatal onset, adult onset, and partial forms. This webinar uses case examples to discuss common presentations, a multidisciplinary approach to management, new advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology, and current research for therapies.
