Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a relatively uncommon autoimmune disorder of neuromuscular junction characterized by fatigable muscle weakness, bulbar symptoms, and weakness of extraocular muscles with a significant diurnal variation. Among all other autoimmune disorders associated with optic neuritis, the association of MG with optic neuritis is very rare, with only a few cases have been reported till date. We present a rare case of 37 years old female who was admitted in November 2018 with generalized MG (seronegative) along with isolated bilateral optic neuritis, and the patient responded significantly to steroids, immunomodulators, and anticholinergics.
