Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders 

Tuesday, August 29, 2023
15:00 – 17:00


This session will discuss the clinical presentation of common and rare hyperkinetic movement disorders focusing on the history and phenomenology in order to reach a syndromic and etiological diagnosis. Investigations to rule out acquired, genetic and neurodegenerative diseases will be discussed. Management can be divided into (i) removal of reversible causes where these exist and (ii) symptomatic, in which the evidence for additional drugs and other strategies will be presented. Demonstrations using patient videos will be included.
