Case Submissions

Movement disorder specialists, academic centers, and country-based groups can submit your most interesting cases for possible presentation at the 2024 MDS Video Challenge in Philadelphia, PA, USA.  

Individual submitters and individual centers may submit a single case only. If a country-based Movement Disorders group is collating cases for the country from multiple centers, they can submit multiple cases, but only a single case can be submitted per group member or institution.

A committee with representation from around the world will select the most interesting and educational cases for presentation at the event. 

Submission guidelines:

  • Cases should not be presented as an abstract in the Poster Areas. Cases will not be accepted if they have been previously published.
  • Presentations will include 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. 
  • If your case is selected, you will designate a fellow or junior MDS Member to present the case. 

Awards will be given for the most interesting and challenging cases.
