Teaching objective

To improve the diagnostic competence of professionals dealing with patients with neuromuscular diseases.

 

Target audience

Medical specialists (paediatricians, neurologists, paediatric neurologists, geneticists, neuropathologists) and medical specialists in training, and other attendees of the WMS congress.

 

Course description

The emphasis of this course will be on the clinical approach of patients who present with symptoms of a neuromuscular disease. The course will start with an introduction part, followed by 10 educational case presentations covering most common neuromuscular phenotypes.

There will be the opportunity to discuss the integrated diagnostic approach to patients shown on video, to look at muscle MRI imaging, neurophysiology, or muscle biopsies.

Upon completion, participants should be able to better recognize a number of important neuromuscular presentations; incorporate up-to-date diagnostic approaches to the patient suspected of a neuromuscular disease; consider the differential diagnosis; apply appropriate tests.
