Myasthenia gravis, thymoma, intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor antibody.

Intestinal pseudo-obstruction occurs rarely in patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) and thymoma. The etiology of the intestinal pseudo-obstruction remains to be elucidated, although an autoimmune mechanism is postulated. We present the first report of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR)-specific antibody in a patient with seropositive MG, malignant thymoma, and intestinal pseudo-obstruction. This finding provides evidence that intestinal pseudo-obstruction associated with thymoma and possibly other neoplasms may be related to antibodies against the neuronal nicotinic receptors at autonomic ganglia.[1]
