Abstract

Twelve consecutive cases of myasthenia gravis have been studied histologically and histochemically. In addition 8 of these were studied ultramicroscopically, and 7 had nerve terminal and end-plate studies. Eleven of the cases show evidence of one type or another which supports a primary neuropathic aetiology. These findings are in keeping with some recent publications which have been reviewed.
