  • Lambert–Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) is a rare autoimmune presynaptic disorder of neuromuscular transmission (Lambert et al., 1956). Clinical findings generally include the following triad: proximal muscle weakness, autonomic features, and areflexia (O’Neill et al., 1988). Weakness results from a reduction in the release of acetylcholine from motor nerve terminals, caused by P/Q-type voltage-gated calcium channel antibodies (Lennon et al., 1995). The classic electrophysiological triad… CONTINUE READING
