What is an expert in ECD?

Following the definition established after many discussions among experts involved in histiocytoses for many years, we define two levels of expertise in ECD.

Centres of Reference:

We define centres of reference according to the definition of the European Union Committee of Experts on Rare Diseases (EUCERD), former Rare Diseases Task Force (RDTF).
