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).
Centres of Expertise / Specialised Centres:
Centres are only listed in this category, if there is at least one responsible person who fulfils at least one of the following criteria:
Minimum number of peer reviewed publications about ECD: 1 OR
Multiple patients with ECD seen/treated
List of experts for Erdheim-Chester Disease:
We are currently creating a map of experts for Erdheim-Chester disease who fullfil the criteria for expertise we have laid down.
