Description: Ataxia is the predominant manifestation of many acquired and inherited neurologic disorders affecting the cerebellum, its connections, and the afferent proprioceptive pathways. This course covers the phenomenology and etiologies of cerebellar and afferent ataxias and provides indications for a rational approach to diagnosis and management. Particular attention will be given to inherited ataxias and new developments in genetic testing. Through case presentations, faculty will discuss the diagnostic process and test result interpretation.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with the differential diagnoses and work-up, including genetic testing of common and uncommon neuromuscular diseases presenting in childhood, and get an update on new breakthroughs in the field.
