Clinical Ophthalmology, 04/16/2012
Asamura S et al. – A 39–year–old woman was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis when she was 8 years old. Although many treatments – such as cholinesterase inhibitors and steroids – had been given to the patient, her condition did not improve sufficiently. One year after the operation, the operated upper eyelids showed symmetrically appropriate heights with good functional outcome. A sling procedure with an autologous fascia lata was suitable for correcting poor levator function of an ocular myasthenia gravis case.
