Clinical Interests
Dr. Piquet sub-specializes in autoimmune neurological diseases, multiple sclerosis and other inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system. Her main clinical interest includes antibody-mediated disorders of the nervous system such as autoimmune encephalitis and stiff person syndrome (SPS) as well as demyelinating disease including multiple sclerosis and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD). She has expertise in other inflammatory diseases including neurosarcoidosis, vasculitis, and central nervous system complications of rheumatological diseases such as lupus and Sjögren syndrome, among others.
