CASE DISCUSSION: Treatment Challenges in Opsoclonus Myoclonus Ataxia Syndrome
In the second YEPNS Case Discussion Webinar we will talk about a rare autoimmune condition - Opsoclonus myoclonus ataxia syndrome (OMAS) and its Treatment Challenges. The onset of OMAS is usually abrupt, often severe, and it can become a chronic condition. OMAS typically occurs in association with tumors (neuroblastoma), or following a viral or bacterial infection. We will present two similar clinical cases with different outcomes, we will discuss about the prognosis, treatment strategies, prognostic features and long-term outcomes. We have prepared few good questions to our Senior Mentor. Are you also interested in these clinical challenges? Join us!
