  • For many years, the only published criteria for the electrodiagnostic (EDX) recognition of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) were those formulated by Lambert (1957; 1969). In 1990, different EDX guidelines were incorporated in the all-inclusive diagnostic criteria formulated by a subcommittee on ALS of the World Federation of Neurology, which met in El Escorial, Spain. Unfortunately, particularly in regard to the EDX requirements, the 'El Escorial criteria' have several flaws which compromise… CONTINUE READING
