Although there is general agreement among experienced physicians on the usefulness of different treatments for myasthenia gravis (MG), so many variations are possible that in practice, similar patients treated by different physicians rarely are treated the same. Because of these divergent opinions one may read papers in reputable journals that present and propose extremely variable programs for treating MG.
