This year, transversal topics centered on common medical problems of patients with sickle cell, thalassaemia and other forms of haemolytic anaemia will be one of the key points of the symposium. These plenary sessions will deal with multiple converging lectures as well as with the state of the art therapy treatments and innovations in the field.

The second undeniable cornerstone for this symposium will be the special focus on the very rare anaemias, dealing intensively with PKD and PNH prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management. Furthermore, interactive sessions between patients and worldwide experts will develop a perfect atmosphere for brainstorming and sharing doubts among the attendants.

Some of the key points of the Symposium will be:

• To provide an overview on diagnosis, etiology and clinical management of patients with pyruvate kinase deficiency, paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria, and haemoglobinopathies (sickle cell anaemia and thalassaemia)
• To provide an overview of general hallmarks of rare anaemias and their clinical management.
• To propose multi-disciplinary comprehensive care for patients with rare anaemias.
