  • Overview

    Patients with IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) can present with a wide variety of signs and symptoms, and to a variety of specialties. In this symposium, Drs. John Stone (Chair), Emanuel Della Torre, and Yoh Zen discuss why IgG4-RD should be on the differential for a long list of conditions and, importantly, how to work through the diagnosis of IgG4-RD. Join us to learn more about why IgG4-RD should be on your radar, and how early diagnosis and intervention can ensure patients maintain the best quality of life.
