[Radiation therapy in myasthenia gravis (author's transl)].

Abstract

The etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of myasthenia gravis are discussed. We treated 16 patients, 13 of them with conventional X-rays and three by megavoltage irradiation. Our results show that radiotherapy has a definite role in the management of patients with myasthenia gravis and should be considered more frequently in future.
