WEBINAR | A Challenge in Neurogenetics: Huntington Disease in Kids
Sep 15 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
WEBINAR | A Challenge in Neurogenetics: Huntington Disease in Kids

Free of charge | Open to everyone

Huntington’s disease in children receives less attention than Huntington’s disease in adults. However, research indicates that the childhood disease works somewhat different than the one seen in adults. Two years ago, Squitieri found that the juvenile disease should be separated into two distinct categories: one more aggressive than the other. Moreover, the two should perhaps be treated differently. Learn more about Squitieri’s findings here!

Speaker: Ferdinando Squitieri

Squitieri has been studying and treating patients with Huntington’s disease and juvenile onset Huntington’s disease over the last 30 years. He is Head of the Huntington and Rare Diseases Unit at Fondazione IRCCS Casa Sollievo Sofferenza Research Hospital in San Giovanni Rotondo and the Neurology Department at CSS-Mendel Institute in Rome.

WEBINAR | Diagnostic Algorithm for Childhood Onset Chorea

Free of charge | Open to everyone

Chorea denotes movement disorders. The term is derived from the Ancient Greek “choreia” meaning “dance”. The most common inherited cause of chorea is Huntington’s disease, which formerly was called Huntington’s chorea. However, it was renamed because of the many important, non-movement features characterising the disease.

Speaker: Juan Dario Ortigoza-Escobar

Ortigoza-Escobar is a pediatric neurologist from the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in Barcelona, Spain. He is specialised in movement disorders such as dystonia, Parkinsonisms, chorea, tremors, myoclonias, tics/Tourette syndrome and deep brain stimulation.
