Abstract

The familial occurrence of autoimmune myasthenia gravis (MG) with anti-acetylcholine receptor antibodies (AChR Ab) has been rarely reported. Different antibody specificity in family members has also been described. To our knowledge, a familial form of MuSK Ab positive MG has never been reported. We studied the HLA allele profile in a family with two sisters affected by MuSK positive MG.
