Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In 2011, the RDDR network was developed in central Italy to provide support in the diagnosis of dysmorphic newborns. RDDR has been developed as an online electronic system that currently links 20 neonatology centres in central Italy, representing the submitting nodes that transmit patient clinical histories and the relevant photographical documentation to the software, which is password-protected. Accepted cases appropriate for the RDDR are reviewed by the RDDR's dysmorphology experts who, through a forum section, provide diagnostic suggestions and recommendations for further investigation and patient management. Their remarks are summarised in clinical expert reports and sent to the submitting nodes. The results of the first 22 submitted cases are reviewed in this paper. The RDDR was developed on the basis of a related European tool, Dyscerne, a network of centres of expertise for dysmorphology.
