Resumen

GODOY, José Maurício et al. Criteria for diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1993, vol.51, n.2, pp. 236-242. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1993000200015.

The authors report two cases of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) misdiagnosis (a craniocervical junction disorder, and a cervical spinal cord ependymoma). They review some causes of ALS-like syndrome land propose a protocol to be adopted for the study of all patients who present clinical abnormalities suggesting ALS.

Palabras llave : amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; diagnostic criteria; diagnosis.
