C19 - Neuromuscular Junction Disorders II: Toxins, Lambert-Eaton Syndrome and Less Common Disorders of Neuromuscular Transmission

Event Time: Saturday April 22, 2017 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Laura Tormoehlen MD
Description: Faculty will provide current perspectives on the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and care of patients with Lambert-Eaton and congenital myasthenic syndromes, as well as toxin-induced NMJ disorders. Case presentations demonstrate a practical approach to identification, evaluation, and management of common and more challenging patients in the clinical setting. This program complements C12: Neuromuscular Junction Disorders I: Myasthenia Gravis, Ocular, and MuSK Myasthenia, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the diagnosis and management of patients with less common NMJ disorders; learn to critically select therapies; and be able to distinguish myasthenia gravis, MuSK myasthenia, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and recognize the less common disorders of neuromuscular transmission.
