C60 - Assessment of Rapidly Progressive Dementias I: Prion and Non-prion Neurodegenerative Diseases

Event Time: Sunday May 5, 2019 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, 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 prion and antibody-mediated disorders. This program complements Assessment of Rapidly Progressive Dementias II: Infections and Autoimmune Mediated Conditions, 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.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge
