INTRODUCTION: Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune neuromuscular disease characterized by fluctuating weakness. Respiratory weakness can occur in later stages in a subset of patients and is rarely an initial presenting symptom of the disease. Here, we report a case of a patient who presented with respiratory distress and was ultimately diagnosed and treated for anti-MuSK antibody positive MG, with complete resolution of symptoms.
