C142 - Autoimmune Neurology I Basics and Beyond: Autoimmune Encephalitis and Paraneoplastic Neurological Syndromes of the CNS and PNS

Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Autoimmune Neurology, Neurohospitalist, Advanced Practice Provider, MS and CNS Inflammatory Disease
Director(s): Stacey Clardy MD, PhD
Description: The field of Autoimmune Neurology continues to grow and change rapidly: many new diseases have been discovered, providing possibilities to treat patients previously considered untreatable. Faculty will describe the full range of neural autoantibodies and their relevant clinical disorders (neurological, psychiatric, and oncological), including a particular focus this year on pediatric presentations of autoimmunity. The course will include clinical pearls aiding the diagnosis of autoimmune and paraneoplastic neurologic disorders, also covering differential diagnosis, investigations, and treatment. This program complements Autoimmune Neurology II Advanced: Autoimmune Encephalitis at the Frontiers of Neuroscience, but covers independent topics.
