Is there still some reason for classic presentation of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis described in the literature?

Obviously, a lot has changed regarding Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). That old and exemplary definition made by Chacort, of a neurological disease, of a progressive, degenerative and inexorable character, with “isolated” depletion of the upper and lower motor neurons no longer seems so limited to words. ALS is already considered a systemic disease; not only because of new findings that circumvent motor manifestations, but because of genetic codes that signal a form of evolution of hereditary cases. Speaking of that 5-8 year survival after the onset of the first signs and symptoms, the increase in new technologies, associated with a different way of medicating and treating, changed the natural history of book chapters; even with the cruelty with which it strips and compromises patients in various topics related to their functional abilities. We are looking for a picture of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis described in detail in the literature [1-2].
