About Me

Dr. Sudheeran Kannoth is a trained autoimmune neurologist. He has done a fellowship in autoimmune neurology from Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA. This included interpretation and reporting of neuronal antibody tests in the Mayo Clinic's Neuroimmunology laboratory as well as clinical care of the patient in the Mayo Clinic's autoimmune neurology clinic under the Department of Neurology. He has characterized and described the syndrome of autoimmune atypical parkinsonism. He has developed the diagnostic criteria for intracranial infectious (mycotic) aneurysm.
