  • The El Escorial criteria for diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) have been in use for almost a decade. A revised set of criteria, meant to supersede the original set, was developed at a 1998 World Federation of Neurology (WFN) ALS meeting at Airlie House in Warrenton, Virginia, USA. This revised document, nicknamed El Escorial Revisited, has been published on the WFN-ALS website. El Escorial has proven useful in standardizing diagnostic criteria for entry into research trials and… CONTINUE READING
