Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW:

To review ocular myasthenia gravis (OMG), a localized form of myasthenia gravis clinically involving only the extraocular, levator palpebrae superioris, and orbicularis oculi muscles.

RECENT FINDINGS:

Ocular manifestations can masquerade as a variety of ocular motility disorders, including central nervous system disorders and peripheral cranial nerve palsies. While sparing the pupils, the diagnosis and management can be challenging.

SUMMARY:

Because several diagnostic and treatment options are available for OMG, clinicians must decide the sequence and combination based on the level of disease activity and patient disability.
