Immune-related myasthenia gravis is a rare, disabling, and potentially fatal adverse event of immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment. It is important to identify and manage it promptly. We present two cases of immune-related de novo myasthenia gravis observed at the Modena Cancer Center in two elderly patients treated with two anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies: cemiplimab and nivolumab.

Abstract

Immune-related myasthenia gravis is a rare, disabling, and potentially fatal adverse event of immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment. It is important to identify and manage it promptly. We present two cases of immune-related de novo myasthenia gravis observed at the Modena Cancer Center in two elderly patients treated with two anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies: cemiplimab and nivolumab.
