Occasionally, CSF studies reveal mild lymphocytic pleocytosis and elevated gamma globulins. Patient 3 was diagnosed with generalized MG at the age of 27 and underwent thymectomy one year after diagnosis.
The authors suggest that the association might be caused by subclinical systemic lupus erythematosus in three of them due to the presence of antinuclear antibodies, including both cases with recurrent DD, although this has been contested due to the dsmielinizantes that two of their patients could actually have NMO CSF analysis and histological findings can provide additional supportive data but are not mandatory.

In conclusion, demyelinating diseases are rare among patients with MG and may be part of an eesmielinizantes syndrome spectra or genetic predisposition to autoimmunity. Multiple sclerosis and myasthenia gravis: We found three patients with MG that developed DD during follow-up; their clinical, electrophysiological and autoantibodies status doens described in Tables 1 and 2.
Two of them presented a monophasic course patients 1 and 2one evolved to recurrent neuromyelitis optica patient 3.
