16 Possible Causes for Myasthenia Gravis, Presynaptic Defect at the Neuromuscular Junction

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    A c.923C T variant affecting an adjacent residue (p.Pro308Leu) produced a presynaptic neuromuscular junction defect and a dominant hereditary motor neuropathy in a second[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] AIM: To assess the treatment effects of rituximab in a population of patients with myasthenia gravis and Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Classification of congenital myasthenic syndrome Usually classified according to the defective site of the neuromuscular junction, it is often divided into presynaptic, synaptic[intechopen.com]

  • Ptosis

    These disorders are distinguished by molecular defects and the localization of the dysfunction at the presynaptic, postsynaptic, and neuromuscular junction.[journals.lww.com] KEYWORDS: Myasthenia gravis; adjustable ptosis; developing countries; open innovation; ptosis crutch[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: External levator advancement; eyelid surgery; myasthenia gravis; ocular myasthenia; ptosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome

    Congenital myasthenic syndromes are classified as presynaptic, synaptic, or postsynaptic, depending on the primary defect's location within the neuromuscular junction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Review question We reviewed the evidence about the effect of ephedrine in adults and children with myasthenia gravis (MG), neonatal myasthenia and the congenital myasthenic[cochrane.org] KEYWORDS: Congenital myasthenic syndrome; Myasthenia gravis; Neuromuscular junction disorder[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

No.[musculardystrophyuk.org] There are many types of CMS, grouped into three main categories named for the part of the neuromuscular junction that’s affected: presynaptic (the nerve cell), postsynaptic[mda.org]
