Prognosis of Monomelic Amyotrophy

Prognosis for Monomelic Amyotrophy: The symptoms of MMA usually progress slowly for one to two years before reaching a plateau, then remain stable for many years. Disability is generally slight. Occasionally, the weakness progresses to the opposite limb. There is also a slowly progressive variant of MMA known as O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome, which affects the small muscles of the hand and forearm and has a slowly progressive course.
