The goals of the Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome (OMS) Workshop were to discuss the various issues and special challenges that are associated with the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of OMS. The objective was to identify strategies to improve research and clinical collaborations and resource sharing in the United States and internationally.
