Topic: Solved and unsolved cases in Childhood Movement Disorders


In the October EPNS Case Discussion, two cases of childhood-onset movement disorders will be discussed through a video-based presentation.

First, the case a 17-years old boy will be illustrated. The only child of consanguineous parents, he presented with an apparently slowly progressing, generalized movement disorder with onset in infancy, mild intellectual disability, and peculiar neuroimaging features.

Case 2 is a 10-years old boy with a longstanding history of abnormal movements in absence of any other neurological or non-neurological complaints.

Both cases will be discussed interactively with the attending audience with regards to phenomenology, neuroimaging features and genetic findings to dissect the diagnostic pathway
