[Editorial] Hope and foresight for your patients with ALS (Lancet Neurology)
 




The astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, arguably the most famous patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to date, died on March 14, 2018. He was exceptional in many respects, and so was his disease. Hawking`s long survival after an ALS diagnosis (over 50 years) gave hope to other patients, and his case helped ALS specialists illustrate disease variability and prognostic uncertainty. When caring for people with a neurodegenerative disease that usually progresses rapidly, like ALS, prognosis is key to plan medical care and future needs.
