C208 - Assessment of Rapidly Progressive Dementias II: Neurodegenerative Diseases and Prion Diseases

Event Time: Thursday April 26, 2018 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology, Foundations in Clinical Neurology
Director(s): Michael Geschwind MD, PhD, FAAN
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 neurodegenerative disorders and infections (mostly subacute or chronic) that can present as RPD. This program complements C193: Assessment of Rapidly Progressive Dementias I: Overview, Prion Diseases, and Antibody-Mediated Rapidly Progressive Dementia.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the differential diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases and infectious causes of RPD and the clinical presentation and evaluation of the more common conditions.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
