Want to be Reconciled with the Sun

Dr. Fatima Zahra Mernissi


This specialized program aims to provide comprehensive care for patients with Xeroderma pigmentosum which is a rare genetic disorder characterized by extreme sensitivity to ultraviolet (UV) light, leading to severe sunburns and an increased risk of skin cancer.


The program includes consultation and hospitalization rooms with anti-UV filters.


With a multidisciplinary team of dermatologists, surgeons, ophthalmologists, and geneticists, they prioritize meticulous examination and early detection of tumors, utilize medical treatment for smaller lesions, emphasize physical and chemical photoprotection, provide specialized consultations with ophthalmologists and maxillofacial surgeons, conduct genetic screenings, and organize awareness events to promote photoprotection and provide social and psychological support for patients and their families.
