This digital poster explains the pathophysiology behind the rare but fatal condition known as Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS). Due to the uncommon nature of NMS, this poster is geared towards education. Information regarding the underlying pathophysiology, causes, signs and symptoms, risk factors, and treatments are presented to the reader. The goal is to spread knowledge about NMS in hopes of recognizing and treating this disorder before patients are harmed.
