Abstract

Seventy-four myasthenic patients (54 F, 20 M; mean age 49.6 years) were evaluated during the diagnostic criteria of the DMS-III in order to investigate the prevalence of psychiatric disturbances in this disorder. Fifty-one had thymectomies, of whom 28 females had hyperplasia, two females and five males had involution of the thymus, and 10 females and six males had thymomata. Psychiatric disturbances were observed in 38 subjects (51%), in particular adjustment disorders with depressed mood and mixed emotional features (22%), affective disorders (14%) and personality disorders (18%).
