Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in a patient with a family history of huntington disease: genetic counseling challenges.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Huntington disease (HD) are generally considered to be distinct and easily differentiated neurologic conditions. However, there are case reports of the co-occurrence of ALS with HD. We present a 57-year-old mal
