Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disease — a disease that occurs when the immune system attacks the body’s own tissues. In MG, that attack interrupts the connection between nerve and muscle — the neuromuscular junction.

The disease first appeared in medical reports in 1672, but didn’t earn its name, which literally means “grave muscular weakness,” until the 1880s.
