C226 - Neuro-rheumatology: Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disease I

Event Time: Thursday May 9, 2019 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Autoimmune Neurology, MS and CNS Inflammatory Disease
Director(s): Jeffrey Gelfand MD, MAS, FAAN
Description: An interdisciplinary faculty of neurologists and rheumatologists will provide an update on neuro-rheumatology - the neurologic manifestations of systemic inflammatory and autoimmune syndromes. Part I of this course will cover updates in rheumatological diagnosis, physical examination techniques, and interpretation of laboratory studies; discuss neurologic manifestations and treatment of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Sjogren's Syndrome, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome; and review CNS Vasculitis and other vasculitides and their mimics. Part II will cover updates in diagnosis and treatment of Neurosarcoidosis, Pachymeningitis and Behcet's Disease; discuss Peripheral Nervous System Manifestations of Rheumatological Diseases; and conclude with an interdisciplinary case discussion with faculty highlighting how rheumatologists and neurologists approach differential diagnosis, treatment, and management. This program complements Neuro-rheumatology: Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disease II, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with the differential diagnosis of neurological manifestations of rheumatological, systemic inflammatory and other autoimmune diseases; be able to identify common phenotypes associated with neurological organ system involvement of rheumatological syndromes; learn ways of distinguishing neuro-rheumatological diagnoses from other neuroinflammatory disorders; and develop practical approaches to treatment, care coordination, and health maintenance for neuro-rheumatological conditions.
