Does myasthenia gravis run in families?

A Answers (1)

  • The cause of myasthenia gravis is largely unknown. Although it is not believed to be hereditary, sometimes it occurs in two or more members of the same family. This may be because some people can be genetically predisposed to developing myasthenia gravis.
