C142 - Pediatric MS: Diagnosis and Treatment

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Child Neurology and Developmental Neurology, MS and CNS Inflammatory Disease
Director(s): John Rose MD, FAAN
Description: Pediatric demyelinating diseases are a multi-faceted group of disorders now being understood in greater depth. This program will focus on pediatric MS with attention to emerging demographic and clinical features of the disease. Faculty will stress the differentiation of MS from ADEM and NMO in pediatric patients, review the status of immunotherapies for children with demyelinating diseases, and present the particular MRI features of these demyelinating diseases in children. The program will integrate the new knowledge in the context of case-based exercises, and selected studied cases will be presented to illustrate current concepts in diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and therapy of pediatric multiple sclerosis.
Completion Message: Participants should know the clinical and MRI parameters of pediatric demyelinating diseases, understand diagnosis of pediatric MS and related disorders, differentiate pediatric demyelinating diseases, understand the current treatment options, know the emerging environmental factors, know the status of clinical trials in pediatric MS, and understand how to access continuing education/discussion specific for pediatric MS.
