Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used in 5 patients with clinically definite amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to determine the frequency of central white matter abnormalities. Two patients had symmetrical areas of increased signal intensity seen on MRI extending from the cortex, through the corona radiata, posterior limb of the internal capsule, and cerebral peduncles into the pons. These MRI abnormalities presumably relate to the pathological changes observed by others in the central white matter of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
