Associated Conditions[edit]

There's no such thing as "CNS Disease." The current reference for "CNS Disease" is broken and added post-hoc. [1] Previously, "Demyelinating CNS diseases" was listed as an associated condition. [2] "Demyelinating CNS diseases" makes sense as it's mentioned in the literature. For example, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Metaquanta (talkcontribs) 01:43, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

will look--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 10:03, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
will leave your revert for now however this[1] does not comply w/ Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources (medicine)#MEDRS... IMO--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 22:27, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Removed both items in this silly little bullet-pointed list because both items were based on non-WP:MEDRS sources and created an impression that these are widely accepted associations. JFW | T@lk 17:52, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks! That looks like the best solution. Metaquanta (talk) 04:39, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Apparent typo needs attention from a medical expert[edit]

In the paragraph under SURGERY, the last three sentences (with my insertion of bold type,) are:

Surgery in the case of MG involves the removal of the thymus, although no clear consensus indicates it would be beneficial except in the presence of a thymoma. However, thymectomy should not be done in ocular myasthenia.[52] A 2016 randomized controlled trial found benefits from thymus removal for ocular MG.[53]

These two sentences are contradictory, and probably the word "no" should be inserted, so that the second phrase would read found no benefits from thymus removal. Please ask a medical professional to make a judgment about this.

Otherwise, this is a very well-written article. Janice Vian, Ph.D. (talk) 01:35, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Thanks User:Janice Margaret Vian agree and adjusted. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 01:46, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. That was amazingly fast. Janice Vian, Ph.D. (talk) 05:20, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Random people[edit]

Not sure how they are notable with respect to the disease. Yes notable themselves.

"==Notable cases==

Doc James we could trim it down to just a few(many articles have individuals that are affected by a condition and are publicly recognized people)...IMO--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 10:05, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
