Abstract Objective To examine the correlation between the results of a clinical neurological evaluation and swallowing dysfunction in myasthenia gravis (MG) patients who presented with difficulty in swallowing and underwent videofluorographic (VF) and fiber-optic endoscopic (FE) evaluation. Methods The swallowing studies of 13MG patients with difficulty in swallowing seen at the Department of Neurology from June 2016 to April 2018 were reviewed. The assessment parameters on VF and FE examination...

We evaluated swallowing function in patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) with or without dysphagia symptoms using different evaluation parameters and compared the results with those of healthy subjects. A total of 36 patients with MG and 25 healthy volunteers were included in the study. The subjects were classified into three groups; patients without dysphagia (group 1), patients with dysphagia (group 2), and healthy participants (group 3). The presence and severity of dysphagia, the oropharynge...

Botulinum toxin is used extensively for the management of gastrointestinal smooth muscle disorders. This review is a summary of the current status of this therapy. Botulinum toxin appears to be beneficial for achalasia, hypertensive esophageal disorders, and anal fissure, but has unclear utility in gastroparesis, upper esophageal sphincter dysfunction, and sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. Very few placebo-controlled trials have been performed despite widespread use of the toxin for the past 25 yea...

We present two patients with Graves’ disease and concurrent myasthenia gravis. The impact of the dual diagnosis on the clinical course and the potential for a delayed diagnosis of myasthenia gravis is discussed. Patient 1, a 28-year-old man was diagnosed with Graves’ disease following his second respiratory arrest. His history was strongly suggestive of a second pathology. Patient 2, a 66-year-old Cantonese woman with established Graves’ disease presented with thionamide-related neutropaenia. Ex...

Latar belakang: Miastenia gravis (MG) merupakan penyakit autoimun yang mengganggu transmisineuromuskular karena berkurangnya reseptor asetilkolin di tautan saraf otot sehingga dapat menyebabkandisfagia orofaring. Disfagia pada MG dapat menyebabkan aspirasi yang meningkatkan morbiditas,mortalitas, dan menurunnya kualitas hidup. Tujuan: Menganalisis perbaikan disfagia orofaring padapasien MG dengan melihat peningkatan functional oral intake scale (FOIS) pada pemeriksaan fiberopticendoscopic evalua...
