Objective: To investigate the level and influencing factors of self-perceived burden of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Results: The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients’ self-perceived burden was in the mild level with a total score of 24.51±11.22 . The multiple linear regression analysis shows that the influencing factors were patients’ breath function, the gender of patients, patients’ knowledge about the illness and caregivers’s burden level.
