Webcasts 60th AANEM Annual Meeting
An Algorithmic Approach to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Multifocal Motor Neuropathy
Presentation by Peter Donofrio, MD
Dr. Donofrio will first describe the demographics and clinical features, and diagnostic criteria for MMN. Then the signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathies and neurologic conditions that may mimic MMN in clinical presentation will be described. This will be followed by a discussion of several algorithms that can aid diagnosis and what the implications are of misdiagnosis.
Presentation by Mark B. Bromberg, MD, PhD
Mark B. Bromberg, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology, Chief of the Division of Diagnostic and Clinical Neurology, Department of Neurology at the University of Utah, Utah, Texas (USA), will attempt to simplify electrodiagnostic testing in MMN.
Presentation by John D. England, MD
Dr. England starts with his one message: intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) is the only treatment that has been shown to be effective for MMN in randomized controlled trials that meet the Class I, Level A evidence. So, if you want to leave, you can now leave, but Dr. England does have some other things to talk about.
