Ocular myasthenia gravis

Academic Article


  • Purpose of Review: To review ocular myasthenia gravis (OMG), a localized form of myasthenia gravis clinically involving only the extraocular, levator palpebrae superioris, and orbicularis oculi muscles. Recent Findings: Ocular manifestations can masquerade as a variety of ocular motility disorders, including central nervous system disorders and peripheral cranial nerve palsies. While sparing the pupils, the diagnosis and management can be challenging. Summary: Because several diagnostic and treatment options are available for OMG, clinicians must decide the sequence and combination based on the level of disease activity and patient disability. © 2012 Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
