Abstract: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or also known as Lou Gehrig disease is a neurodegenerative disease that attacks motor neurons. Prevalence in Western countries ranges from an average of 5.2 per 100, 000. The average onset of ALS incidence is approximately 60 years, where men affected more frequently than women. The diagnosis of ALS is clinically confirmed. Electrodiagnostic testing contributes to diagnostic accuracy and imaging examination is used to exclude other etiologies. We report a 36-year-old female patient diagnosed with ALS clinically and electrodiagnostically which had an image of an asymptomatic syringomyelia.
