The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of Myasthenia Gravis (MG) on the Central Nervous System (CNS) and/or the smooth muscles of the iris through pupillometry. Sixteen recently diagnosed Myasthenic and sixteen non-Myasthenic subjects of matching age and gender underwent a pupillometric study of the effects of single flash stimuli of 24.6 candelas/m2 intensity and 20 msec duration. A significant decrease in Amplitude (p < 0.001), Maximum Constriction Velocity (p < 0.001) and… CONTINUE READING
