Summary of the diagnostic symptoms of Loeys-Dietz Syndrome by Dr Bart Loeys from University of Antwerp Hospital, who first described the condition in 2005 with his colleague, Dr Hal Dietz.

The Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Patient Day was held at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford on 5th September 2015. Dr Bart Loeys and Dr Hal Dietz were in attendance together with many other medical specialists to offer knowledge, advice and guidance to over 150 LDS patients and their family members who'd travelled from across Europe to attend.

Loeys-Dietz syndrome is a recently-discovered autosomal dominant genetic syndrome which has many features similar to Marfan syndrome, but which is caused by mutations in the genes encoding transforming growth factor beta receptor 1 (TGFBR1) or 2 (TGFBR2).[1][2] It was identified and characterized by American physician Harry C. Dietz and Belgian physician Bart L. Loeys, for whom it is named.
