Abstract

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive degenerative disorder affecting the motor neurones. The incidence of MND is 2 per 100 000 population/year and prevalence is approximately 4–6 per 100 000 population. There is still no cure for MND, nor any treatment that improves the prognosis greatly. Early referral to a neurologist is recommended if MND is suspected. Multidisciplinary team input with focus on symptom control is the cornerstone of management.
