Info Edit

    Motor neuron diseases (MND) are a set of chronic, degenerative, and progressive neurological conditions typified by the destruction of motor neurons and the subsequent deterioration of voluntary muscle activity. The most common MND is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The ICD-10 code corresponding to motor neuron diseases is G12. Our gold standard diagnostic criteria are the El Escorial Criteria, with other similar criteria (e.g., the original set from World Federation of Neurology) if necessary.
