C51 - Non-Alzheimer's Dementia II: Lewy Body Dementias and Other Parkinsonian Dementias

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Director(s): Gil Rabinovici MD
Description: Occasionally lumped as "Parkinson's Plus" syndromes, Lewy body disease (DLB), multiple systems atrophy (MSA), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), and corticobasal syndrome (CBS) are associated with distinct clinical and pathological features, differential responses to dopamine therapy, and differential sensitivity to neuroleptics and other agents. Furthermore, in addition to the movement disorder, all these diseases are associated with cognitive, behavioral, and systemic symptoms that provide unique challenges for clinicians and caregivers. Faculty will provide a case-based approach to introduce the clinical characteristics of these disorders and provide up-to-date recommendations on clinical management, as well as an update on biomarker development and advances in unraveling the pathophysiology and developing disease-specific therapeutics. This program complements C33: Non-Alzheimer's Dementia I: Frontotemporal Dementias and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to apply up-to-date clinical criteria and current evidence to diagnose and treat DLB, MSA, PSP, and CBS.
CME Credits: 2
