Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease that affects the communication between nerves and muscles. The hallmark of this condition is muscle weakness that increases during activity and improves after rest.
 
The disease occurs in men and women of all ethnic groups. Although it most commonly affects women under 40 and men over 60, it can occur at any age. The disease is not contagious; however, if a woman who has myasthenia gravis becomes pregnant, the baby may acquire antibodies from the mother and have symptoms for a few weeks or months after birth.
 
There are several treatment options for this condition, including medications, plasma exchange, and high-dose intravenous immune globulin.
