Abstract

We report a 38-year-old nurse who developed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) beginning in September 1990. In May 1991, her 38-year-old husband developed dysarthria, which progressed to typical ALS. This is the fourth report in the literature of conjugal ALS occurring outside of Guam. Although this event is most likely due to coincidence, exogenous agents should be considered in the etiology of ALS.
