The Lymphangiomatosis and Gorham’s Disease Alliance (LGDA) and the Lymphatic Malformation Institute (LMI) were proud to host the 2nd International Conference on Generalized Lymphatic Anomaly and Gorham-Stout Disease. The conference was held at the W Hotel – Buckhead in Atlanta, GA from June 10-11, 2016.

The conference was chaired by Dr. Ionela Iacobas (Texas Children’s Hospital) and Dr. Michael Dellinger (Research Director, LMI). This conference was a two-day workshop, which brought together clinicians and investigators from a variety of specialties having expertise and interest in GLA and GSD to learn about advances in science and to establish the framework of a consensus for evaluation and monitoring guidelines and a scheme of risk stratification for GLA and GSD.
