3rd Annual CSF Disorders Symposium

CSF Disorders Symposium 2018

Connective Tissue Syndromes and Manifestations of
Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders of the Brain and Spine:
“If You Cannot Connect the Issues, Think of Connective Tissues”

Saturday, June 16, 2018
Warren Alpert Medical School
Providence, Rhode Island

Over 200 disorders impact connective tissue. Those are genetic disorders, such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Marfan syndrome, and autoimmune disorders, such as lupus and scleroderma. Ehlers- Danlos syndromes (EDS), including the associated hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSDs), are the most commonly observed, and the neurological manifestations include effects on the cerebrospinal fluid circulation. This has been largely overlooked and poorly described.

In 2017, for the first time management and care guidelines have been produced for the co-morbidities that can occur within EDS and HSDs. Experts and physicians treating patients with EDS, more frequently and uniquely observe neurological manifestations that ought to be linked to the pathophysiology of deficient collagen, hypermobility, unstable vertebra and early disk disease, and an aroused immune system. All those deficiencies may cause structural and functional problems to the central nervous system.

The CSF symposium will discuss and advance the understanding of the above with focus on the most prevalent Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, and provide both clinical and translational evidence to the concept of central nervous and cerebrospinal fluid system manifestations of connective tissue syndromes based in imaging, pathological findings and results of pain, physical therapy and surgical interventions.
