What is progression of myasthenia gravis (MG)?
  • The most typical pattern is for disease to spread from mild to moderate or severe over the course of weeks or months, although sometimes the disease can remain restricted to the external ocular muscles and eyelids for years.
  • Disease is confined to the ocular muscles in only around 15% of patients.
  • In severe and general weakness it is rare for the ocular muscles to be unaffected.
  • Intercurrent illness, medications, pregnancy, emotions and hypokalaemia can all exacerbate weakness and may swiftly precipitate a myasthenic crisis and respiratory inadequacy.
  • Nearly 90% of patients develop general disease within a year from onset, and onset to maximal weakness is less than 36 years in over 80%.
  • Choking, drooling and difficulty with chewing or swallowing can produce aspiration pneumonia.
  • Spontaneous remissions are rare. Full and prolonged remissions are even rarer. Most remissions from treatment occur in the first 3 years of the disease.
