Myasthenia gravis is an uncommon disorder of the neuromuscular junction resulting in weakness of all striated voluntary muscles. Therapeutic advances have increased patients' age and survival. Older patients with myasthenia gravis may have additional medication needs. Numerous drugs have experimental and clinical evidence of neuromuscular blockade. A MEDLINE search of the English literature from 1966 to the present pertinent to drug-induced myasthenia gravis was performed. Additional literature… CONTINUE READING
