Rev Med Suisse. 2008 Apr 30;4(155):1084-8.
[Article in French]


There are numerous genodermatoses and different types of transmission. Recent technological progress of molecular genetics allows to confirm or specify increasingly the clinical diagnosis and to better define the risk of recurrency. A close collaboration of dermatologists and geneticists has been established at CHUV since several years. By means of clinical examples we illustrate the organisation and procedures of this pluridisciplinary consultation which aims to optimize the clinical management of rare genetic diseases.
