Approach to Diseases of the Neuromuscular Junction

Journal Article (Chapter)

Diseases of the neuromuscular junction are rare, and few physicians have seen enough patients with them to easily recognize all the ways in which they can present. Yet, the most important step in making the diagnosis is to think of these conditions. This chapter presents the typical clinical features that should suggest the diagnosis of myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, which should lead to appropriate diagnostic procedures and referrals. © 2011 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
