Myasthenia Gravis (MG) comes from the Greek and Latin words meaning "grave muscular weakness."
The most common form of MG is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by fluctuating weakness of the voluntary muscle groups. The prevalence of MG in the United States is estimated to be about 20/100,000 population. However, MG is probably under diagnosed and the prevalence may be higher.
MG is not directly inherited nor is it contagious. It does occasionally occur in more than one member of the same family.
