C63 - CNS Toxicities

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Neeraj Kumar MD
Description: New drugs of abuse are emerging at an alarming rate as manufacturers of “legal high” products use chemicals to replace those that are banned. Many of these drugs (bath salts, spice, molly) are touted as legal, perceived as safe, and in many cases difficult to detect on standard drug screens. The industrial use of metals resulting in occupational exposure continues to engender public and scientific interest. Over-the-counter medications may be associated with neurotoxicity. Use of biologics like TNF alpha-inhibitors and various monoclonal antibodies may be accompanied by neurological side effects. CNS toxicities are seen in context of antineoplastics, antiepileptics, analgesics, anesthetics, and antimicrobials. Syndromes such as posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS), and serotonin syndrome result from commonly used medications. This course will cover the topic of CNS toxicities in a case-based format with a focus on recent developments.
Completion Message: Participants should have a clear understanding of how to diagnose and treat CNS disorders that may accompany heavy metal toxicity, illicit drug use and those that occur as an adverse effect of prescribed medications.
