Abstract

A patient with human immunodeficiency virus infection had cellular and humoral immune responses studied longitudinally from the onset of generalized myasthenia gravis. Progressive decline in CD4 +.CD45R+ and CD4+,CDw29 + T-cells, cellular immune responses to alloantigen and mitogen stimulation, and acetylcholine receptor antibody titers were associated with clinical improvement of all myasthenic symptoms.
