Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) co-infection in patients with myasthenia gravis has not been well described. Our primary aim is to describe the course of illness of a myasthenia patient who developed repeated episodes of myasthenic crisis along with severe COVID-19 infection. This case highlights the need to monitor the immune response to the infection accurately, and treatment of myasthenia gravis with COVID-19 should be tailored to the individual patient.
