C193 - Assessment of Rapidly Progressive Dementias I: Overview, Infections Presenting as Rapidly Progressive Dementia and Antibody-Mediated Rapidly Progressive Dementia

Event Time: Thursday April 26, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology, Foundations in Clinical Neurology
Director(s): Michael Geschwind MD, PhD
Description: Rapidly progressive dementia (RPD) can be challenging to diagnose. The differential diagnosis is broad and includes many potentially reversible conditions. As many RPD are treatable if addressed early, quick diagnosis is important. Through presentation of common and challenging cases, faculty will review the differential diagnosis of RPD, the approach, and management strategies. This session will focus on prion and antibody-mediated disorders. This program complements C208: Assessment of Rapidly Progressive Dementias II: Neurodegenerative and Infections Presenting as Rapidly Progressive Dementia, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the differential diagnosis of prion and antibody-mediated causes of RPD and the clinical presentation and evaluation of the more common conditions.
