Myasthenia gravis (MG) and Lambert–Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) are both acquired autoimmune
disorders characterized by a disruption in the neuromuscular transmission. However in MG the acetylcholine receptor on the nerve is affected, the voltage-gated calcium channel in LEMS. Several clinical differences between myasthenia gravis and LEMS are also known.
