This publication is the result of the joining of forces, so to speak, of a diverse group of professionals in an effort to depict the many manifestations of myasthenia gravis.
Although, in the grand scheme of things, only a few manifestations are covered in this text, the far-reaching effect of this disease is not lost. From the surgical treatment of the disease's complications to the common findings of a routine eye examination, this text explores this disease's impact in a variety of outlets within healthcare. We hope you find this text interesting, but most importantly informative. Enjoy.
