Diagnosis and Management of Opsoclonus-myoclonus Ataxia Syndrome

Hooman Rowshan

Abstract


In most rural medical centers general practitioners with little or no specific postgraduate medical training in emergency medicine frequently staff emergency departments. General practitioners working in emergency departments often face unique challenges when caring for patients presenting with sign and symptoms of obscure or rare medical conditions. In this case report, I discuss specific strategies for early recognition and management of one such rare neurological condition-- Opsoclonus-myoclonus Ataxia Syndrome.
