Primary respiratory failure as the presenting symptom in Lambert–Eaton myasthenic syndrome

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Myasthenia gravis can present with rapid respiratory failure as the first manifestation of disease. In the Lambert–Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS), such a manifestation has rarely been reported. We are reporting a patient who developed respiratory failure as the first manifestation of LEMS without associated carcinoma. Copyright © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
