Course Description The objectives are to be able to consider interferonopathies in the appropriate context of progressive or static encephalopathies, to learn about their pathogenesis, and possibilities of treatment.
- Think of a particular group of disorders with variable age of onset and severity, but typical constellation of symptoms.
- Start the work-up or where to refer if needed.
- Considering a hereditary disorder in the differential diagnosis of intrauterine infections, cerebral calcifications, or hereditary paraparesis.
- Including recessive interferon pathway disorders in any child with slowly progressive or static neurological deficits, particularly when more than one offspring is affected in the family albeit at different degrees.
