Dr Boyd Ghosh speaks to delegates about multiple systems atrophy (MSA) and supranuclear palsy (PSP) which are atypical parkinsonian syndromes that are fairly difficult to diagnose in the early stages. Boyd shows delegates videos of patients so that they can learn to recognise how MSA and PSP are different from Parkinson’s disease. For example patients with PSP do not have Levodopa responsiveness or may be sensitive to light, which is a sign that it not always readily recognised.
