Motor Neurone Disease

  • Definition:

    It is a degenerative disease of a gradual onset and progressive course, affecting the motor system only (systemic disease).

I u m n affection
I-U.M.N. Affection

  • a) In the spinal cord:

  • Spastic paraplegia if the lesion is below the cervical region, or

  • Spastic quadriplegia if the lesion is at the cervical region.

a-Brain Stem

“Pseudo-bulbar palsy

b-Spinal Cord

“Progressive Muscular Atrophy”

“Lateral Sclerosis


Iii combined u m n and l m n affection
III-Combined U.M.N and L.M.N Affection

Syndrome of :

"amyotrophic lateral sclerosis“

There are combined signs and symptoms of lower and upper motor neurone lesions



Diagnosis
Diagnosis

  • ALS is difficult to diagnose because it has similar symptoms of other neuromuscular disorders. Some of the procedures include:

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)



1- Avoid fatigue and exhaustion.

2- Massive doses of vit. E and B.

3- Anabolics.

4-Physiotherapy,respiratory care,swallowing,….
