Abstract
Progressive muscle weakness and fasciculations can indicate developing amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig's disease. Its treatment and prognosis have been unchanged for almost 100 years, although our understanding on a cellular level is better. All ALS patients can be expected to progress to a state that requires complete supportive care.
