Abstract

Introduction. - Myasthenia gravis is an uncommon autoimmune disease which affects all ages There are late-onset occurrences whose diagnosis is not considered often enough in geriatrics. Exegesis. - We report a case of late-onset myasthenia gravis with a 78-year-old woman who was multi-pathologic and hospitalized for a diplopia check-up and recurrent falls. These stress the difficulty of suggesting myasthenia gravis in geriatrics due to the number of differential diagnoses that canmislead the physician. For the elderly subject, the diagnostic methodologyis close to that of the younger subject The search for related diseases must be systematic. Conclusion. - Late-onset myasthenia gravis must remain a diagnosis presentin the mind of the physician because of the significant improvement of thefunctional prognosis after the start of the treatment. The majority of subjects will recover a normal life. (C) 2001 Editions scientifiques et medicales Elsevier SAS.
