Myasthenia Gravis is a potential devastating disorder of neuromuscular transmission, causing abnormal muscle weakness. The majority of patients with myasthenia gravis are adults. However myasthenia gravis occurs in the pediatric population as follows: relative, transient neonatal or juvenile myasthenia gravis. In fact, recent studies indicate that children constitute 29% of all patients with myasthenia gravis. Half to two thirds of these children denied proper diagnosis until the first year of disease onset. Myasthenia gravis is associated with other autoimmune disorders.
