Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia gravis is a disease of the junctions where nerves that control muscle function meet the muscles themselves (the neuromuscular junction). In myasthenia gravis patients, antibodies form within the neuromuscular junction that make the transmission of nerve impulses from nerve to muscle less efficient. This creates a variety of problems which may include weakness of the peripheral muscles (usually worsening with repetitive contraction of the muscles), droopy eyelids (ptosis), double vision, and swallowing or breathing difficulties.
