Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome
Are you familiar with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome? Myasthenia gravis and the Lambert–Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS), both acquired autoimmune disorders involving impaired neuromuscular transmission, may present similar muscle weakness. Deciding on a diagnosis between the two can be circumstantially difficult.
If the first symptom to be noted is ocular weakness, LEMS is typically eliminated, as with limb weakness confined to the arms. Diminished tendon reflexes and dysautonomia are features of LEMS but not MG.
