Immune Dysregulation: What is it, and what is it NOT?

Nov 2, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. (ET)

Overview: Immune dysregulation describes a heterogeneous group of conditions and symptoms that make it hard to recognize. This often delays diagnosis and therapy, as patients without true Immune Dysregulation are sent for evaluation that they don’t need, and patients with Immune Dysregulation often go unrecognized.  This session will provide up to date information on what constitutes Immune Dysregulation, how to recognize Immune Dysregulation in patients, and how to recognize Immune Dysregulation mimickers that are better served by other services.  History, physical exam findings, and laboratory diagnostics will be reviewed as screening tools for Immune Dysregulation.

Speaker: Ed Behrens, MD
