What is MG?

Myasthenia gravis (pronounced `my˖ĕs˖`thēēn˖ē˖ă  `grăv˖ĭs), also known simply as MG, is a rare neuromuscular disorder. When the first case of MG was documented in 1672 by Thomas Willis, an Oxford physician, not much was known or understood about it. Today, we know there are multiple causes for MG as well as treatment options.
