dc.description.abstract Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a rare neuromuscular disease with an autoimmune background. It is characterized by the presence of antibodies directed against the acetylcholine receptor. Diagnosing MG poses a lot of difficulties because it is characterized by high variability of symptoms. The most important symptoms of this disease are weakness and excessive muscular fatigue. Diagnosis of the MG requires carrying out a diagnostic tests with a broad spectrum. One of the elements of the comprehensive treatment of patients with MG is the implementation of appropriate physiotherapeutic procedures. Together with other forms of therapy, it alleviates the symptoms of the disease and improves the quality of life of people with myasthenia. The aim of this work is to present diagnostic methods and physiotherapeutic possibilities in one of the neuromuscular diseases - myasthenia gravis. The bibliographic databases were searched: PubMed, Polish Medical Bibliography and Medline. Articles in Polish and English were used.
