Dent Disease & Lowe Syndrome

Rare Disease Group

The group aims to advance our knowledge of Dent Disease and Lowe Syndrome by:

  • establishing a registry of patients
  • developing clinical guidelines regarding diagnosis and treatment
  • providing a platform for clinical and molecular research into these disorders
  • empowering affected patients and their families by facilitating contacts between patient/families and by the development of educational material

Condition-specific data fields for Dent & Lowe patients in the RaDaR rare disease registry are currently being coded.

  • Prof Michael Ludwig, German Lowe/Dent patient registry
  • Dr Arend Bokenkamp, Dutch Lowe/Dent patient registry
  • Dr Lada Beasic, US registry for Dent disease
