Demyelinating Disease & Diagnosis

A Condition in which damage occurs to the protective covering (myelin sheath) that surrounds nerve fibers in your brain and spinal cord is termed as Demyelinating disease. Nerve impulses slow or even stop, when the myelin sheath is damaged, causing neurological problems. Demyelinating disease may be monophasic or chronic in children. Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis and Clinically Isolated Syndromes, including Optic Neuritis and Transverse Myelitis are typical monophasic disorders in children. Improved technologies have led to enhanced recognition of these disorders. Significant advancements have been made over the past 10 years in the recognition, diagnosis, and management of Pediatric Demyelinating Disorders. Several awareness programs are conducted to inform about the clinical course, response to treatment, and disease pathogenesis.

  • Track 1-1 Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis
  • Track 2-2 Clinically Isolated Syndromes
  • Track 3-3 Alexander Disease
  • Track 4-4 Cerebrotendinous Xanthomatosis
  • Track 5-5 Multiple Sclerosis
  • Track 6-6 Acute Central Nervous System Demyelination in children
  • Track 7-7 Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorders
  • Track 8-8 Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease
