Meet the Challenges of Post-HSCT VOD: An Interactive Case Study of a 1-Year-Old Male With Neuroblastoma (SY1)

Join us as we review a case study involving a pediatric patient with neuroblastoma who was at risk for and subsequently developed veno-occlusive disease (VOD), also known as sinusoidal obstruction syndrome, following hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. This case study highlights the patient’s history of present illness and gives a detailed, post-HSCT review of the VOD progression, management and supportive care approaches, and the differential diagnosis. Current VOD diagnostic criteria will also be discussed.

Please note that while this optional event is included in the conference fee, selecting the event on the registration form is required to attend. Space is limited.
