C98 - Clinical Approach to Muscle Disease II: Inflammatory Myopathies and Muscle Pathology

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Tahseen Mozaffar MD, FAAN
Description: Patterns of recognition for various inherited and acquired muscle diseases are important to accurately diagnose and minimize testing. It also helps to judiciously select testing modality. Furthermore, the role of muscle pathology has changed in the diagnosis of muscle disorders, especially inherited muscle disorders. Role of autoimmune myositis specific and associated antibodies has modified the way we approach inflammatory muscle disorders. Through presentations of common and more challenging cases, faculty will facilitate a discussion with the audience of differential diagnosis and laboratory evaluation. Each case will be followed by an overview and update on the topic. This program complements C84: Clinical Approach to Muscle Disease I: Muscle Disorders and Rhabdomyolysis, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize the various clinical patterns associated with myopathies that will help narrow down the differential diagnosis and judiciously reach a final diagnosis. Participants would learn about the role of muscle pathology in diagnosis of inherited and acquired muscle diseases. The participants will understand the role of autoimmune myositis associated and myositis specific autoantibodies in managing myositis patients. Participants will be able to understand the various causes of rhabdomyolysis and how to approach patients with rhabdomyolysis.
