Myasthenia gravis-inflammatory myopathy (MG-IM) association has been rarely reported as specific clinical entity characterized by variable myositis manifestations, ranging from subclinical to diffuse muscle involvement with characteristic distal upper limb weakness. Although, in view of this, it has been hypothesized that distal muscle weakness in MG-IM could be due to the muscle inflammation instead of a pure neuromuscular transmission impairment, a biopsy-proven myositis process of distal muscles of upper limbs has not yet been provided.

Abstract

Myasthenia gravis-inflammatory myopathy (MG-IM) association has been rarely reported as specific clinical entity characterized by variable myositis manifestations, ranging from subclinical to diffuse muscle involvement with characteristic distal upper limb weakness. Although, in view of this, it has been hypothesized that distal muscle weakness in MG-IM could be due to the muscle inflammation instead of a pure neuromuscular transmission impairment, a biopsy-proven myositis process of distal muscles of upper limbs has not yet been provided.
