Myasthenia Gravis In 1890, German medical professor Wilhelm Erb and other physicians had been observing several cases of a neuromuscular disease that they believed was affecting how nerve impulses were transmitted to muscle at the neuromuscular junction. The patient’s experienced a grave muscular weakness and Wilhelm named it myasthenia gravis. Through further research, the physicians discovered whether it affected the eye muscles first, or created difficulty in talking, chewing and swallowing,

Myasthenia Gravis
Myasthenia Gravis Myasthenia gravis is believed to have been discovered as early as 1672 when Thomas Willis, wrote in his book De Anima Brutorum, that "a woman who temporarily lost her power of speech and became \'mute as a fish.\'".(Abboud, 1996). Another early description of this disease is documented in colonial correspondence with England. The excessive fatigues he encountered wrecked his constitution; his flesh became macerated; his sinews lost their tone a warrior chief. He had an elastic

Myasthenia gravis
myasthenia gravis Myasthenia Gravis is an autoimmune neuromuscular disorder. The term myasthenia is Latin for muscle weakness, and gravis for grave or serious. It is characterized by random weakness of voluntary muscle groups. Muscle groups most commonly affected include the eye muscles, facial, chewing and swallowing muscles, and shoulder and hip muscles. It is typical for a myasthenic patient to have a flattened smile, droopy eyes and an ineffective cough due to weak expiratory muscles, ar

The body's nervous system has three (3) main parts BRAIN SPINAL CORD NERVES All three (3) of these parts work together to tell our bodies what to do. For example: The brain says, "Hey, I want to exercise!" So, it sends a message to the spinal cord, who then gives the message to the nerves, who then deliver the message to the rest of your body. Our nervous system does a lot more than help us move. It also helps us with our five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch When you breathe in,

Glaucoma in the US Abstract This research paper examines glaucoma over the age of 40 in the United States, in the last 10 years. Knowing the fact that glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States leads us to choose this subject for research. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steals sight without warning and often without symptoms. Vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve. This nerve acts like an electric cable with over a million wires and is

The term “myasthenia” is latin for muscle weakness, and “gravis” for grave or serious. Myasthenia gravis is characterized by decremental neuronal response with repetitive nerve stimulation, and evidences itself in a few characteristic, physical ways.
