C121 - Small Fiber Neuropathies: Sensory, Autonomic, and Both I: Focus on Autonomic Nervous System

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Christopher Gibbons MD, FAAN
Description: Small fiber and autonomic neuropathies are common but often unrecognized conditions that affect the peripheral, somatic, and autonomic nervous systems. Through the presentation of didactic material and cases of varying complexity, faculty will facilitate a discussion of the pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, diagnostic evaluation, and therapy of these conditions. Part I will focus more heavily on conditions that impact the autonomic nervous system; Part II will focus more heavily on conditions that impact the somatic or sensory nervous system. Both parts will discuss conditions that may impact the sensory and autonomic small fibers simultaneously. This program complements C136: Small Fiber Neuropathies: Sensory, Autonomic, and Both II: Focus on Sensory Nervous System, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with the pathophysiology, semiology, differential diagnosis, diagnostic approaches (including skin biopsy and autonomic testing), laboratory evaluation, and treatment of small fiber somatic and autonomic neuropathies.
