Description Ocular Myasthenia Gravis (OMG) is an autoimmune disorder of the neuromuscular junction characterized by fatigable weakness of extraocular muscles, levator palpebrae, and orbicularis oculi resulting in fatigable ptosis and binocular diplopia. The predominant auto-antibodies in Myasthenia Gravis are, among others, those against acethylcholine receptors. Multiples studies reported a seropositivity between 40% and 60% f or OMG. Some patients may develop weakness in their limbs, bulbar or respiratory muscles,that is, Generalized Myasthenia Gravis (GMG). The purpose of this study is to report the frequency of Acetylcholine Receptor Antibody (AChR) seropositivity i n patients with clinical suspicion of OMG and the percentage of these patients who developed GMG during the follow up.
