Movement disorders may be encountered in various neurological conditions (e.g., stroke, multiple sclerosis, hypoxia, etc.) and systemic disorders (e.g., infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, metabolic disturbances, paraneoplastic syndromes, etc.). The prompt recognition of the movement disorder and the review of its possible causes is very important, as in some cases, it may be the only clinical manifestation or it may precede the diagnosis of the underlying disorder.
The aim of this online teaching course is to offer a comprehensive overview of the most common movement disorders in neurological and systemic disorders, and to teach practical aspects regarding pathogenesis, clinical aspects and treatment.
This course consists of lectures with illustrative case studies and video examples incorporated, and will promote interaction between participants and international experts in the field.
At the end of this course, the attendees will be able to describe the phenomenology of movement disorders which best characterize specific systemic disorders and to manage complex cases involving multidisciplinary approaches.
