C66 - Neuro-oncologic Emergencies

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuro-oncology
Director(s): Nimish Mohile MD
Description: Neuro-oncology encompasses several emergent conditions that require immediate recognition and therapeutic management in order to preserve and improve patient outcomes. Faculty will present cases involving the most common and critical neuro-oncologic emergencies and describe the optimal diagnostic approach, therapies, and prognosis. Six clinical scenarios will be presented, each discussing clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, therapeutic management, and patient outcomes. Faculty will present cases of cancer patients who present with myelopathy, cauda equina syndrome, acute encephalopathy, increased intracranial pressure, stroke, and new neurologic symptoms in bone marrow transplant patients. For each case, faculty will discuss a broad differential diagnosis with an emphasis on the most emergent conditions and treatments.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with evidence-based emergent management of metastatic epidural spinal cord compression, be familiar with identification and management of increased intracranial pressure in brain tumor patients, develop a differential diagnosis for acute mental status changes in a cancer patient, understand the possible differentials for new neurologic complications in bone marrow transplant patients, and understand the management of acute stroke in cancer patients.
