On 11.11.2011 RAH, together with ESCMID – ESGCP organized in Iasi, Romania The Regional Symposium on Hydatidosis / Echinococcosis Central and Eastern European Countries
ADVANCES ON EPIDEMIOLOGY, DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF ECHINOCOCCOSIS
The Symposium, using the grants offered by ESCMID, was a real success, having as participants well known specialists from 11 European Countries (Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Serbia, Switzerland, Sweden and Turkey), as weel as from Romania.
The high level of the works and posters presented by the participants and the open discussions held after each presentation have been well apreciated by everyone. The conclusion was that Echinococcosis is very frequent in central and South-East Europe, all countries from this area facing the same problems and even if everyone presented a big number of cases, the real figures for each country are unknown, as only a small part of cases are reported.
