In this global community, where travel to and from countries outside America is becoming more frequent, it is increasingly likely that doctors will be seeing patients with diseases that would otherwise not be common in their country. This symposium is designed to; introduce five systemic infections that can have devastating consequences for the patient and their vision.; Each presenter will highlight a challenging case from their practice, they will update us on the current thoughts of how to diagnose,; investigate and manage that infection. Neuroradiology interpretation will be provided by Dr. Chavda. In the closing minutes of their; presentation there will be comments to the future and anticipation of any changes that we can expect in the coming years for the; infectious disease described. There will be ample time for questions and reflections from the floor after each presentation.; At the conclusion of this course, the attendees should be able to: 1) recognize and distinguish five common infectious diseases that; affect the central nervous system and eye; 2) plan an appropriate series of investigations and evaluate the results regarding such; diseases and; 3) recommend treatment plans for these diseases.
