Abstract

The relentless progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) makes palliative treatment a challenge for the physician. Prognosis and treatment options should be openly discussed with patient and relatives, attempting to foster hope for the future. Most if not all symptoms of ALS can be alleviated by appropriate treatment. Nutritional deficiency due to pronounced dysphagia can be efficiently relieved by percutaneous enterogastrostomy. Symptoms of chronic hypoventilation can be treated by non-invasive home mechanical ventilation, provided the patientis motivated and the familial environment is supportive. Hospice institutions may provide invaluable help in the terminal phase.
