Myasthenia GravisMyasthenia Gravis Myasthenia Gravis is an autoimmune Disease that is characterized by a decrease in number of AChR 23. Myasthenia GravisMyasthenia Gravis Myasthenia gravis (MG) is the most common primary disorder of neuromuscular transmission. The usual cause is an acquired immunological abnormality, but some cases result from genetic abnormalities at the neuromuscular junction 24.
