International symposium on rare epilepsy

Healthcare professionals are invited to attend a one-day international symposium in London to learn about hypothalamic hamartoma, a rare form of brain tumour or lesion that  can result in many different seizure types.

Until the twenty-first century there was little or no treatment for these congenital lesions nor for the impact of the epilepsy they cause.

The meeting is being held from 9.30am-4pm at Weston House Lecture Theatre, Great Ormond Street, London on 17 September 2016 and is a chance to learn about the diagnosis and management of the condition including gamma knife surgery and the latest laser ablation technology.

Professor Helen Cross

The symposium is being chaired by Professor Helen Cross, OBE, Prince of Wales chair of childhood epilepsy and head of UCL_ICH Neurosciences Unit. Speakers include neurologists and neurosurgeons from centres across the world with specialist units in hypothalamic hamartoma.

Registration is £100 on or before 31 May and £150 on or after 1 June 2016.
