Recognizing abnormalities of the neuromuscular junction

Myasthenia gravis is a common autoimmune disorder caused by an abnormality at the neuromuscular junction. In this video from our Clinical Neurology Essentials course, you'll cover the pathophysiology of the disease and an array of clinical exams you can use to diagnose it in your patients. The tests you learn in this video will help you differentiate between ocular and generalized myasthenia gravis, and determine whether your patient has a neuromuscular junction problem or a structural problem such as a stroke or nerve injury.

Confidently choose and perform the most appropriate neurologic examination for any patient with our Clinical Neurology Essentials course. In this course, you'll learn to master basic and advanced examination skills, neuroanatomy, and the art of asking the right questions so that you can interpret examination findings and localize pathologies with ease.
