Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - RIYADH: The eighth Saudi Pediatric Neurology Society Congress and the first GCC Pediatric Neurology Conference will be held in Jeddah next month.

The event, running from Nov. 1 to 4, will focus on the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders in children and cover topics such as neonatal neurology, neuroinflammatory disorders, neuromuscular diseases, brain and spinal injury and infections, epilepsy, cerebrovascular disease, autism, movement disorders, and metabolic and genetic conditions.

Fahad Al-Bashiri, president of the Saudi Pediatric Neurology Society, and a professor at King Saud University’s College of Medicine, in Riyadh, said: “Over the past few years, advancements in pediatric neurology have been significant, driven by continuous research, technological innovation, and improved clinical practices. This has led to early diagnosis and screening for neurological disorders in children.

“Also, tailoring treatment plans based on a child’s genetic and molecular profile is becoming increasingly common, which can lead to more targeted therapies for genetic neurological disorders and improved outcomes with more precise pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical interventions for pediatric neurological conditions.

“These treatments have fewer side effects and are more effective in managing symptoms and improving the quality of a child’s life,” he added.

The joint conference will bring together pediatric neurologists from throughout the Kingdom and the Gulf Cooperation Council region who will discuss the management of neonatal neurology disorders.

And the gathering will provide an opportunity for trainees in pediatric neurology residency and fellowship programs, and medical students, to present their research projects.

“This leads to better treatment strategies and outcomes for patients with complex neurological conditions,” Al-Bashiri said.

Dr. Osama Muthaffar, a pediatric neurologist and associate professor at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, who is also head of the society congress, said: “This year’s congress features cutting-edge research which will inspire new research directions, promote innovation, and lead to breakthroughs in understanding and treating pediatric neurological conditions.

“Beyond its informative value, the conference serves as an exceptional platform for sharing experiences, forging connections, and fostering collaborative efforts among pediatric neurologists.

“This event is the key for knowledge sharing, collaboration, education, and research advancement in pediatric neurology which helps improve the care and support provided to children with neurological disorders, ultimately enhancing their quality of life and prognosis,” Muthaffar added.
