We performed histological and immunohistochemical analyses of the removed thymuses from 20 elderly (onset age > 60 years) and 23 young (onset age < 40 years) patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) who tested positive for serum anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibodies, but who did not have associated thymoma. In the elderly group, nine (45%) patients had(More)
