Setting diagnosis of rare dermatology disease

This letter was received from a Turkish family who had a child  stricken with a rare skin problem. Local doctors were unable to make a diagnosis nor recommend appropriate treatment. The parents contacted iMER case manager Michael Von Springer seeking help for their child.

An initial assessment of the case was made by the iMER medical director Professor Ray Melmed who referred the patient to the Director of the Hadassah Dermatology department Professor Avraham Zlotogorski.

Professor Zlotogorsky examined the child and identified the problem.  Successful treatment was implemented and the family returned home with a healthy and fully functioning child.

Dear Michael,

I hope all is well with you.

As the year comes to a close, I and my family want to express our gratitude in helping us during our difficult times. Aden is much better now, thanks to Dr. Zlotogorski’s precise diagnosis.

May you have a joyous, healthy and prosperous New Year with your beloved ones.

Best Regards,

Ali Tezolmez
On behalf of Tezolmez Family
