Neuromuscular disorders are a heterogeneous group of diseases affecting the peripheral nervous system (including anterior horn cells, nerve roots, plexus, and peripheral nerves), the neuromuscular junction, and muscles. These different entities are well described, and the clinical manifestations and some hallmark signs usually help to make the diagnosis. However, such a diagnosis may sometimes be difficult in an atypical presentation or overlap syndrome: for example, some entities can combine myopathy and neuropathy, such as “critical illness neuromuscular dysfunction.” We report here two patients with a subacute presentation of simultaneous myasthenia gravis, inflammatory polyneuropathy, and myositis, and we discuss this rare occurrence of immune-mediated neuromuscular disorders.
