The field of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and related disorders is a very rapidly evolving field of diagnostics and therapeutics. Every year, more treatments become available and new disease entities are being described. It is very difficult for healthcare providers to stay up to date with such changes. Thus, this educational activity aims to provide up to date value education for attendee. There are limited clinical trials in pediatric population with care of children largely being modeled after research and treatment in adult neuroimmunology cases and collaborative efforts are needed to educate both sides as well as the community. Especially that multiple sclerosis and related disorders can present differently in the adult versus pediatric populations. And a gap of knowledge regarding transition of pediatric patients with MS and related disorders to the adult stage in life and what is needed to assure smooth transition of clinical care and disease understanding. Identification of rare neuroimmuniological disease remains an unmet need and helping healthcare providers understand common and rare presentations of such diseases is at the utmost of importance given the potential for rapid and effective treatment.
