Imagine that your child is always getting sick. You take him to see one doctor after another, but never get a satisfactory diagnosis or treatment. Not knowing what your child is suffering from can be very frustrating.Like David and Nadia, your child might be suffering from plasminogen deficiency, also called PLGD.
PLGD is a rare genetic disease that causes lesions, inflammation and infection to appear on various parts of the body, including the vital organs. The effects can be devastating.
We created Plasminogen Deficiency Awareness Week to raise awareness about this rare disease. This online event will give you the opportunity to submit your questions to an expert panel of doctors and to access case studies, testimonials and webinars.
