Event Time: Sunday May 5, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology, Advanced Practice Provider
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. At the conclusion of this program, attendees are invited to "continue the conversation" by engaging in small group conversation with the director and faculty. This program complements: Assessment of Rapidly Progressive Dementias I: Prion and Non-prion Neurodegenerative Diseases, 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.
