The pathology of myasthenia gravis is still the subject of a great deal of controversy. Pathologic material is difficult to obtain and when obtained studies of the pathology offer such a variety of results that a satisfactory explanation of this peculiar clinical picture has not been arrived at as yet. It is essential that all cases of myasthenia gravis with definite pathologic observations should be recorded, not only for the reason of their rarity but that they may serve toward the construction of an explanation of the pathology of this disease, confirm a part of it or offer useful hints for future observations.
The case reported in this paper offered a great deal of material for such considerations.
