What Is the Prognosis for Myasthenia Gravis?

Q:
What is the prognosis for myasthenia gravis?

A:
Being treated properly, most patients with myasthenia can significantly improve the symptoms, such as their muscle weakness, and lead to nearly normal lives.

Some of the myasthenia gravis cases may go into remission, although it may only be temporary. Muscle weakness may disappear completely so that medications can be discontinued.

Sometimes the severe weakness of myasthenia gravis may cause respiratory failure, and it requires immediate emergency medical care.

Key words: myasthenia gravis prognosis; prognosis myasthenia gravis.
