Grand Rounds

APLAR-ARA 2019 invites individuals to submit abstracts of clinical cases to be discussed in the final scientific session of the congress, Grand Rounds. This is a regular session held at ARA meetings and will be the first year Grand Rounds are hosted at an APLAR congress.

Grand Rounds is a not-to-be-missed session which will provide a fun and supportive environment to discuss unusual cases with colleagues and specialists from across the Asia Pacific region. The Grand Rounds session will offer attendees the opportunity to provide suggestions of differential diagnoses, investigations, and management alternatives for cases presented at the session.

Submissions are encouraged for obscure but not vanishingly rare cases, or common diseases with a twist, where there is an educational component to the story and the diagnosis is not obvious from the outset. We are looking for cases that will make the audience think and engage in discussion, and from which there is a lesson.

Example Grand Round Submission

Please note, Grand Round abstracts will not be included in the International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases (IJRD).

Grand Round submissions now open: SUBMIT A GRAND ROUND.
