Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Juvenile myasthenia gravis is an uncommon autoimmune disorder. Its management is not standardized. Juvenile myasthenia gravis is pathophysiologically similar to myasthenia gravis in adults. However, a number of significant particularities related to race, age at onset, severity, and antibody status complicate the management. We summarize the unique clinical features of juvenile myasthenia gravis and review the therapeutic options.
