Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a rare autoimmune neuromuscular disorder in which antibodies form against postsynaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (AChRs) located at the motor endplate of the neuromuscular junction. MG has a prevalence of approximately 14-40 cases per 100,000 individuals in the United States. Although symptoms may manifest at any age, onset usually peaks in women during their 20s or 30s and in men during their 50s or 60s.
