Event Time: Friday April 28, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Irene Litvan MD, FAAN
Description: Parkinsonian disorders are common. Knowledge on how to diagnose and manage patients with parkinsonian disorders is important for clinicians dealing with adult patients, particularly elderly ones. We will present pitfalls in diagnosing common individuals and also discuss vignettes of patients with typical and atypical parkinsonian disorders. Participants will learn when to suspect patients have common parkinsonian disorders such as Parkinson disease or atypical parkinsonian disorders such as progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, multiple system atrophy, and dementia with Lewy bodies. Participants will also learn the basics of how to manage patients with these disorders. This program complements C232: Movement Disorders for the General Neurologist II: Tremor, Drug-induced Movement Disorders, RLS, and Ataxia and C240: Movement Disorders for the General Neurologist III: Chorea, Dystonia, Myoclonus, Stereotypes, and Tics, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with the differential diagnoses of common and uncommon parkinsonian disorders and how to manage patients with these disorders.
