Abstract

The poor prognosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) makes palliative care a challenge for the neurologist. Most disabilities associated with progressive disease can be ameliorated by symptomatic treatment. Prognosis and treatment options should be openly discussed with thepatient and his/her relatives. Nutritional deficiency due to pronounced dysphagia can be efficiently relieved by a percutaneous enterogastrostomy. Respiratory insufficiency can be treated by non-invasive ventilation at home, provided the familial environment is supportive. Adequate assistance and palliative treatment in the terminal phase is of paramount importance.
