Primary lateral sclerosis (PLS) – Symptoms and causes – Mayo Clinic

More than 20 genes have been associated with familial ALS, of which four account for the majority of familial cases: NINDS primary lateral sclerosis information page.

The disorder causes muscle weakness, atrophyand muscle spasms throughout the body due to the degeneration amyotofik the upper motor and lower motor neurons.

Later, symptoms develop into palsydysphagiadysarthria. The goal is to increase the availability of, and access to, high quality specimens for research to understand amyoteofik neurological basis of the disease.

There is a progressive loss of motor strength, with preservation of intellectual and sensory function. Occupational therapists can provide or recommend equipment and adaptations to enable ALS people to retain as much safety and independence in activities of daily living as possible. Archives Italiennes amyyotrofik Biologie. Enter Search Term Submit Search. ALS is recognized as a service-connected disease by skleorz U.

Glutamate antagonist Riluzol may lead to a slow-down of progression of ALS. For more information abuot finding clinical trials on ALS, visit www. A subtype of primary lateral sclerosis, known as juvenile primary lateral sclerosis, begins in early childhood and is caused by an abnormal gene passed from parents to children.


Most people with ALS die in their own home, with their breath stopping while they sleep. Messages from motor neurons in the brain called upper motor neurons are transmitted to motor neurons in the spinal cord and to motor nuclei of brain called lower motor neurons and from the spinal cord and motor nuclei of brain to a particular muscle or muscles.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Encyclopedia of family health 3rd ed. Independent Living German Version. Men have a higher risk mainly because spinal-onset ALS is more common in men than women.

Archived from the original on December 21, Initially, NIV may only be necessary at night. They can recommend aids such as computer-based speech synthesizers that use eye-tracking technology and can help people develop ways for responding to yes-or-no questions with their eyes or by other nonverbal means.

As of [update] it appeared that differences in the methylation of arginine residues in FUS protein may be relevant, and methylation status may be a way to distinguish some forms of FTD from ALS. Typical or “classical” ALS involves neurons in the brain upper motor neurons and in the spinal cord lower motor neurons.

Please log in to edit this article. Specifically, physical, occupational, and speech therapists can set goals and promote benefits for individuals with ALS by delaying loss of strength, maintaining endurance, limiting pain, improving speech and swallowing, preventing complications, and promoting functional independence.

Jorgensen S, et al. In primary lateral sclerosis PLSthe sklefoz cells in the brain that control movement fail over time. Physical therapy can promote functional independence [96] [97] through aerobic, range of motion, and stretching exercises. Advice on the treatment or care of an individual patient should be obtained through consultation with a xmyotrofik who has examined that patient or is familiar with that patient’s medical history.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Increasing evidence also suggests that various types of glial support cells and inflammation cells of the nervous system may play amyotrofki important role in the disease. The exact mechanisms underlying amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are not yet fully understood. A physician may also order a latrral resonance imaging MRI test, a noninvasive procedure that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the brain and spinal cord.

No test can provide a definite diagnosis of ALS, although the presence of upper and sjleroz motor neuron signs in a single limb is strongly suggestive. It has been shown that individuals with ALS will get weaker if they lose weight. Other NINDS-supported research studies are working to identify additional genes that may cause or put a person at risk for either familial or sporadic ALS.

When individuals can no longer get enough nourishment from eating, doctors may advise inserting a feeding tube into the stomach. Nutritional support Nutritional support is an important part of the care of people with ALS.
