This article is from Journal of Clinical Neurology Seoul, Korea, volume 10.AbstractBackground: Acquired neuromyotonia NMT forms part of the spectrum of acquired peripheral nerve hyperexcitability syndrome, and is thought to be caused by antibodies to voltage-gated potassium channels VGKC. Exertional weakness is unusual unless autoimmune myasthenia gravis MG is superimposed. Case Report: A case of acquired NMT accompanied by exertional weakness without coexistence of seropositive MG is reported herein. Conclusions: Clinical and electrophysiological observations suggest that the cholinergic overactivity in NMT can compromise the safety factor sufficiently to cause a defect in neuromuscular junction transmission.
