C78 - Neuro-rheumatology: Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disease I

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology, MS and CNS Inflammatory Disease
Director(s): Jeffrey Gelfand MD, MAS, FAAN
Description: This course will provide a practical update on neuro-rheumatology—the neurological manifestations of systemic inflammatory and autoimmune syndromes—from an interdisciplinary faculty of neurologists and rheumatologists. Part I will review rheumatological diagnosis, physical examination techniques, and interpretation of laboratory studies; discuss neurological manifestations and treatment of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Sjogren's Syndrome, Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, and Rheumatoid Arthritis; and review CNS Vasculitis and other vasculitides. Part II will review diagnosis and treatment of Neurosarcoidosis, Pachymeningitis and Behcet's Disease; discuss Peripheral Nervous System Manifestations of Rheumatological Diseases; and conclude with an interdisciplinary case discussion with faculty highlighting how rheumatologists and neurologists approach differential diagnosis, treatment, and management. This program complements C91: Neuro-rheumatology: Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disease II, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with the differential diagnosis of neurological manifestations of systemic inflammatory, autoimmune, and rheumatological diseases; be able to identify common phenotypes associated with neurological organ system involvement of rheumatological syndromes; learn ways of distinguishing neuro-rheumatological diagnoses from other neuroinflammatory disorders; and develop practical approaches to treatment, care coordination, and health maintenance for neuro-rheumatological conditions.
