SANTIAGO CORTES, Eva de et al. Fast onset Myasthenia Gravis. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.1, pp.28-30.  Epub 22-Mar-2021. ISSN 2386-8201.

Myasthenia gravis is a disease characterised by mainly proximal muscle fatigue and weakness. For example, the eye muscles, bulbar function, limb and respiratory muscles. Clinical course of the disease is usually variable. This is the most common abnormality within diseases that affect neuromuscular transmission. Symptoms arise from immunological aggression against the postsynaptic membrane of the neuromuscular junction. We report the case of a 36-year-old man who consulted for paraesthesia whilst eating, which went away spontaneously after a few minutes. Two weeks later he was admitted for diplopia and dysphagia. After suspecting myasthenia gravis the relevant additional tests were performed, which led to a diagnosis of seronegative generalised myasthenia associated with thymoma.
