          Abstract

          Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a motor neuron disease involving both the upper and lower motor neurons in the brain stem and spinal cord. Although it is well known that various central nervous system disorders can produce a ‘pseudo-infarction’ pattern on the electrocardiogram, there have been no reports of this particular pattern in ALS patients. This report concerns an ALS patient who presented with an ECG pattern of S–T elevation followed by biphasic T and inverted T without any detectable myocardial abnormality. Data from the present case suggest that this pattern may be an inherent characteristic of ALS.
