X-Linked Hypophosphataemia (XLH) – July 2017
Videos and slides from the Patient and Family day in Manchester, which featured a varied programme with talks by leading metabolic clinicians, discussing the latest innovations in XLH along with networking opportunities for families.
XLH – X-Linked Hypophosphatemia – is a genetic disorder that affects about one in 20,000 people. Typically, it is passed from one generation to the next, but sometimes appears in an individual with no family history of XLH.
