We present a case of a 32-year-old female affected by moderate generalized (MGFA Class IIIb) myasthenia gravis (MG) (Figure 1). She presented with ptosis and generalized weakness and fatigue for the past 10 months. Neurological clinical evaluation was suggestive for MG, while electromyography and dosage of circulating acetylcholine receptor antibodies were both positive. There was no previous relevant clinical history. Specific informed consent was approved by the Internal Ethical Committee and was obtained for a left-sided robotic thymectomy.

Abstract

We present a case of a 32-year-old female affected by moderate generalized (MGFA Class IIIb) myasthenia gravis (MG) (Figure 1). She presented with ptosis and generalized weakness and fatigue for the past 10 months. Neurological clinical evaluation was suggestive for MG, while electromyography and dosage of circulating acetylcholine receptor antibodies were both positive. There was no previous relevant clinical history. Specific informed consent was approved by the Internal Ethical Committee and was obtained for a left-sided robotic thymectomy.
