Is Kennedy's disease inherited condition? Is it possible that ALS is misdiagnosed as Kennedy's disease? What can you tell me about it? I belie that my husband’s doctor made mistake. I am just checking some facts. Thanks in advance.

Kennedy's disease is an inherited neuromuscular disease. It is characterized by slowly progressive wasting and weakening of the muscles. The physical manifestations of Kennedy's disease are in many ways similar to another neurodegenerative disease known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS. So, I guess that mistake is possible, although Kennedy's disease has a significantly slower progression and it is therefore important to distinguish between these diagnoses. I suggest you to get second opinion.
