Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an acquired neuromuscular autoimmune condition that presents clinically with weakness and fatigue of the skeletal muscles. The case described here is a multidisciplinary management of  a 28 yr old primigravida with myasthenia gravis. Although pregnancy with an uneventful course and a good outcome frequently is possible in women who have MG, there are many challenging therapeutic decisions unique to myasthenic women planning pregnancy.


Key words: Myasthenia gravis, neuromuscular autoimmune, skeletal muscles.
