A 20-year-old man with aplastic anemia developed myasthenia gravis (MG) 7 months after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) from an HLA one locus-mismatched sister. Proximal muscle weakness (predominant in the lower limbs) and dysphagia occurred without any other sign of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), 1 month after cessation of immunosuppression with cyclosporine. The diagnosis of MG was based on clinical symptoms and on neurophysiologic investigations showing a significant increase of the Jitter in single-fiber electromyography and a significant decremental response during repetitive stimulation at slow rates, but antibodies against the acetylcholine receptor (AchRab) were negative. All clinical and neurophysiological signs normalized within 1 month of treatment with low-dose prednisolone and pyridostigmine, and the patient is perfectly well 1 year after cessation of all therapy. All cases of BMT-associated MG previously published are reviewed in comparison with ours. The originality of this new observation is that this case is the only one not associated with chronic GVHD and negative for AchRab. Alternatively, MG may have been the sole manifestation of chronic GVHD in this patient. [less ▲]

An adapted multiple point stimulation (AMPS) method is described for estimating the number and relative size of thenar motor units. With this method, the median nerve was stimulated at various sites from the wrist to the elbow. To avoid alternation, only two or three clearly identifiable surface-recorded motor unit action potentials (S-MUAPs) were recruited at each point by incremental stimulation. A total of 10 S-MUAPs, elicited from four to five distinct stimulation points, was used to calculate the average S-MUAP size. By dividing the maximum M-potential size by that value, a motor unit number estimate (MUNE) was derived. In 59 healthy volunteers, from 19 to 87 years old, the mean average S-MUAP size was 87 +/- 27.6 microV.ms and the mean MUNE was 278 +/- 113 motor units. When performed repeatedly, the results were reproducible. The number of motor units declined exponentially with age while average S-MUAP sizes increased only moderately. To assess the validity of the AMPS method, its results were correlated with those obtained using the F-response technique. The correlation coefficient was 0.83 (P < 0.001). [less ▲]
