Subject 3 had a thin corpus callosum in addition to a phenotype typical of HSP. Two patients were diagnosed with MMN. Patient 6 underwent a repeat EMG revealing possible but not definitive conduction block. IV immunoglobulin was trialed, with a therapeutic response.
Anti-GM1 and anti-GD1b antibodies were subsequently found. Rituximab therapy resulted in clinical improvement. Other conditions.
He initially presented with right neck and shoulder pain followed by right hand weakness and atrophy. The diagnosis of DCRPN was made based on the clinical presentation coupled with no progression over the subsequent 2 years.
Similarly, patient 7 was diagnosed with multifocal acquired demyelinating sensory and motor neuropathy after a repeat EMG showed conduction block and sensory involvement. Patient 9 later reported a previous penetrating neck injury that had caused hypoglossal nerve injury and unilateral tongue fasciculations. Patient 11 was diagnosed with brachial neuritis after lack of progression prompted additional history. Previous studies have investigated misdiagnosis of ALS.
Thirty-two out of 7.
These 2 cohorts, as well as an Italian registry cohort, 4 highlight the surprising frequency of ALS misdiagnosis. Our study, however, is the first to investigate a population diagnosed and followed by tertiary neuromuscular specialists. Among these patients, ALS misdiagnosis is not rare.
There are significant differences between our findings and the populations described in Europe. While the Irish ALS patients had been diagnosed by general neurologists, all patients in our cohort had seen a neuromuscular specialist.
In the Scottish register, the most common alternative diagnoses were cervical spondylosis and cerebrovascular disease.
The diagnosis of ALS was made by a wide array of physicians including generalists. In the Italian Registry, the 2 most common ALS mimics were cervical spondylosis and peripheral neuropathy. A notable similarity between these patients and previous cohorts is that all identified lack of progression as the most common reason to consider an alternative diagnosis.
This point is key for current residents and fellows: the importance of longitudinal evaluation of patients diagnosed with ALS by well-trained experts cannot be overemphasized. When considering our cohort, it is noteworthy that only one patient had bulbar symptoms.
Patients with bulbar involvement appear unlikely to be misdiagnosed with ALS. Further, patients who never develop bulbar symptoms despite long follow-up may prompt reconsideration.
