Many neurologic diseases remain difficult to diagnose. Neurodiagnostic tests may be normal or of uncertain meaning, and the medical history can be unrevealing or misleading. Sometimes, a motor speech disorder (MSD) - dysarthria or apraxia of speech - is the predominant sign of such illnesses.
The fact that MSDs (and other neurologic communication disorders) often can be linked to disease location, and sometimes to specific diseases, even when localization and diagnosis have not yet otherwise been established, is often under-recognized.
