Abstract


A Korean man, aged 47, a case of myasthenia gravis, having an onset of an ocular myasthenia, developed to a generalized form with a considerable rapidity in a three-months duration, attained a complate remission after thymectomy. The x-ray finding for the thymic tumor mass grown enough to adhere to the wall of ascending aorta in this case illustrates that there may arise some confusing sequense in making differentiation between the aneurysmal dilatation of the aorta and the thymic tumor mass.
There remains nothing better than thymectomy as an efficacious measure under conditions
such as the age under 50, rapid generalization in myasthenic symptoms and the reality of thymoma. This criteria is considered well to concur with the outcomes of Keynes, Saton and Clagett´s works.
Brief introduction in regard to White and Marshall´s autoimmune theory for myasthenia gravis is also made and possible expansion of this idea onto the therapeutic measure on the basis of immunological view is suggested as well.
