Dear Sir or Madam, 

We look forward to welcoming you to the 4th International Lymphoedema Symposium, where we have planned an interdisciplinary and interprofessional knowledge exchange on lymphological issues for you. 

We are happy to introduce you to a varied programme. As part of our Symposium we will focus on causes of primary and secondary lymphoedema. We 
will cover the topics of diagnostic and imaging as well as optimal therapy and management of lymphoedema. In the course of the event best practice and 
cases will be discussed.

You can expect top-class speakers and practical demonstrations with a focus on medicine, therapy and ideal treatments. There will also be a plenty of time 
for individual questions. 

Let us use this platform to openly exchange ideas and update standards. 

Sincerely yours,
