C56 - Case Studies: Neurologic Consultations in Cancer Patients II

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuro-oncology
Director(s): Patrick Wen MD, FAAN
Description: Neurologists are often called upon to weigh in on management issues related to patients with brain tumors or systemic cancer. They must recognize syndromes that predate cancer diagnosis, complications of therapy, and sequelae. The program will be divided into three sessions using cases to illustrate 1) the current management and new WHO classification of gliomas, 2) the diagnosis and management of metastatic complications of cancer, and 3) recent developments in the diagnosis and management of paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes. These presentations will be followed by a fourth session involving a tumor board format to discuss cases of interest. This program complements C38: Case Studies: Neurologic Consultations in Cancer Patients I, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand the current diagnosis, classification, and management of gliomas; the diagnosis and management of the common metastatic complications of cancer; and the diagnosis and management of paraneoplastic syndromes of the nervous system.
