C91 - Neuro-rheumatology: Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disease II

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): MS and CNS Inflammatory Disease
Director(s): Jeffrey Gelfand MD, MAS, FAAN
Description: An interdisciplinary faculty of neurologists and rheumatologists will provide an update on neuro-rheumatology—the neurological manifestations of systemic inflammatory and autoimmune syndromes. Part I of this course 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 C78: Neuro-rheumatology: Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disease I, 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.
