C161 - Child Neurology: Metabolic

Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Child Neurology and Developmental Neurology
Director(s): Marc Patterson MD, FAAN, FRACP
Description: Inherited metabolic diseases are numerous, daunting in their complexity, and are increasing in number as next generation sequencing is revolutionizing neurological research and practice. This course, the first of a projected multi-year cycle, provides overviews of two important families of these disorders, the mitochondrial cytopathies and the congenital disorders of glycosylation. Mitochondrial cytopathies are collectively relatively frequent, whereas the congenital diorders of glycosylation are rare and ultra-rare in incidence and prevalence. Disorders in both families frequently mimic more common neurologic diseases in children and adults, and as treatment options improve, it is critical to recognize and manage them promptly and appropriately. This program aims to provide a succinct overview of the current diagnosis and management of mitochondrial cytopathies and congenital disorders of glycosylation for residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, child and adult neurologists.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the presentations, differential diagnosis, and workup of mitochondrial cytopathies and congenital disorders of glycosylation. They should also be familiar with the current data on treatment for these disorders, and be confident in managing affected persons as a leading member of the multidisciplinary care team.
