There is increasing recognition of neural antibodies and
autoimmune disorders as a potential cause of seizures in patients with
unexplained epilepsy. This webinar will discuss various diagnostic approaches,
including cerebrospinal fluid analysis, neuroimaging, autoantibody testing, and
will provide you with some practical diagnostic tips on using them in your
epilepsy patients. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and share
real-world experiences with an expert.
At the end of this webinar, attendees should be able to:
- Discuss the stepwise approach to the diagnosis of autoimmune epilepsy and use of predictive scoring models
- Interpret neural antibodies panel testing, significance of low positive titer (e.g. GAD-65, TPO Abs) or presence of antibodies with unknown clinical significance
- Determine the approach to seronegative autoimmune epilepsy cases
