In recent years he felt weakness in his four limbs, he had muscle atrophy, swallowing problems, breathing problems, writing was hard and he had difficulty with drinking. He was diagnosed with motor neuron disease in 2009 and he has been to our hospital 6 times since then. At present he has problems with eating, drinking and breathing.

His liver and spleen were normal and there was edema in both legs.

Nervous System Examination:

Both pupils were equal in size and round, diameter of 2.0 mm, react well to light, with no nystagmus and the eyeballs could move freely. The bilateral forehead wrinkle and nasolabial groove are symmetrical and he can close his eyes normally. His tongue can extend to the teeth and there is tongue muscle atrophy. Showing the teeth is normal but he cannot bulge his cheeks. The soft palate cannot lift powerfully, swallowing is  difficult and he had choking when he drinks water. There was obvious muscle atrophy of his bilateral erector spinae, supraspinatus, infraspinatus muscle, pectoralis major, intercostal muscles, arm muscle groups, thenar muscles, hands interosseous muscles and the leg muscle groups.
