Post Lou Gehrig might not have had Lou Gehrig's disease
This New York Times article is about the idea that Lou Gehrig might not have had Lou Gehrig's disease. A concussion or brain trauma may've caused some other pathology that looks like ALS. Obviously this article points out the need for brain autopsy to know the conclusive diagnosis.

Interesting article. Makes me wonder about one of my kids who's had several concussions from sports and an accident.....
