Module 1: Differential Diagnosis of Chronic Immune-Mediated Polyneuropathies

Primary Audience:

This activity is intended to meet the educational needs of neurologists, NPs, PA, Nurses and Infusion Specialists managing patients with CIDP and MMN.

This module will discuss the presentation and differential diagnoses for CIDP and MMN.

Dr. Brett Morrison specializes in neuromuscular disorders in adults including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, motor neuropathies, myasthenia gravis and muscle diseases including myopathy and muscular dystrophy.

Dr. Morrison’s research interests include investigations into the basic mechanisms of acute denervation and the development of treatments for chronic denervating diseases such amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or motor neuropathies. Current research focuses on treatments designed to reduce muscle loss and atrophy, and thus preserve function, following denervation.

Dr. Brett Morrison received his M.D. and Ph.D. from Mount Sinai Medical School in New York City. He completed his medical internship at the University of Maryland and residency in neurology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Apply knowledge of the differential diagnosis of chronic immune-mediated neuropathies to the diagnosis of CIDP and MMN.
