Abstract

Although neither the mechanism of action of thymectomy for myasthenia gravis nor the genesis of that disease is known, the operation is in general looked upon with favour. This article gives an account of the clinical data, the EMG, and biopsy findings in 6 patients (4 women and 2 men) aged from 19 to 40 years. The clinical data follow Osserman's classification; the study of the neuromuscular function was done by the standard method. The operative technique and findings are described. The essence of the conclusions is that after thymectomy the signs tend to become normal. 4 photographs and 6 diagrams illustrate the text. 7 references to the literature.
