Abstract

A 48-year-old man with no significant medical history presented to the emergency department of a large, urban, tertiary-care hospital complaining of double vision and unsteady gait. Physical examination was remarkable for anisolated, unilateral sixth nerve palsy. After comprehensive testing, a final diagnosis of myasthenia gravis was made. The patient's unsteady gait wasa manifestation of sensory distortion from the diplopia and corrected whenthe patient closed his eyes. The presentation of myasthenia gravis as an isolated sixth nerve palsy is unprecedented in the emergency medicine literature. (Am J Emerg Med 2001;19:410-412. Copyright (C) 2001 by W.B.
