Abstract
Of 85 patients with ALS, the authors identified 3 patients with balanced translocations and 2 patients with pericentric inversions, all affecting distinct chromosomal loci. The high rate of constitutional aberrations (5.9%) suggests that ALS is, in part, associated with recombination-based rearrangements of genomic sequences.
