MDS Virtual Video Challenge

Encore Presentation – Monday, September 20, 2021

Thank you to those who have submitted a Letter of Intent for the MDS Virtual Video Challenge.  The submission process is now closed.  Notifications will be sent out from MDS indicating the cases that will be formally considered for review and possible presentation by the end of April.

The concept: 

  • Movement Disorders Groups representing different countries will submit a Letter of Intent describing their top 1-3 interesting cases for possible presentation during the 2021 MDS Video Challenge. Presentations will entail a very brief clinical description and a well edited video lasting no more than 3 minutes. All cases should have a known diagnosis that will be shared at the end of the presentation. At the time of submission, a designated contact person will be identified by the submitting group who will present the case(s) virtually (pre-recorded) if selected. This presenter should be a fellow or junior MDS Member.
  • A committee, with representation from around the world, will select the most interesting and educational cases for presentation at the meeting.
  • The event will showcase the fellow or junior member presenting their case with expert discussants addressing the phenomenology and diagnosis. Awards will be given for the most interesting and challenging cases. Country pride will add an enjoyable spirit of competition to this event.  
  • The goal of this session is for attendees to learn from a series of unusual, very interesting patients and to see how senior experts approach these types of challenging cases. 

This event is open to all delegates; there is no additional fee to attend.
