OBJECTIVES The purposes of this study were to determine the epidemiological characteristics of muscle-specific kinase-myasthenia gravis (MuSK-MG) in Greece and the IgG subclass of the anti-MuSK antibodies. METHODS This population-based study was performed on MuSK-MG patients in Greece between 1 January 1986 and 30 June 2006. Epidemiological and clinical data for 33 patients were collected. In addition, the distribution of anti-MuSK IgG autoantibody subclasses in the sera of 14 patients was… CONTINUE READING
