Brief Summary:

Upper respiratory infection , including influenza, may exacerbate the symptoms of myasthenia gravis (MG), which is an autoimmune disease that causes muscle weakness and, in some cases, can precipitate a myasthenic crisis

In the present study, we investigated the incidence and risk factors of influenza infection on in myasthenia gravis patients.


Condition or disease
