Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a neuromuscular autoimmune disorder caused by an antibody-mediated, T-cell dependent immunologic attack directed at proteins in the postsynaptic membrane of the neuromuscular junction (acetylcholine receptors or receptor-associated proteins) [1]. While the prevalence of this disorder is unknown in Colombia, this condition affects 20 people per 100,000 inhabitants in the United States. MG has a bimodal age of onset with a peak of incidence occurring between 20 and 30 years of age in women, and a second peak between 60 and 70 years of age in both women and men [1].
