Dysphagia is a common clinical symptom for an ENT surgeon in his clinic, evaluation of which may not be a great challenge. The objective of this article is to report a rare cause of dysphagia which may be difficult to diagnose unless specifically thought of. This is a report of a case of dysphagia secondary to myasthenia gravis seen in a young lady along with tongue fasciculation in an early onset case unlike the ones reported in the literature where the patients are elderly and more often males in the late phase of the disease. At times, dysphagia may be seen secondary to some rare causes and may mislead the doctor. A carefully taken history and methodical clinical examination will avoid unnecessary invasive procedures and delay in the diagnosis.
