Will my myasthenia gravis ever go away?

A Answers (1)

  • Although there is no cure for myasthenia gravis, some people can experience a spontaneous temporary remission that allows them to discontinue medications. A thymectomy-the surgical removal of the thymus gland-can occasionally cause the muscle weakness to completely disappear. The outcome of a thymectomy, however, differs for each person.
