Akash Ingale, was admitted to Fortis Hospital, Vashi, diagnosed with the unusual combination of Myasthenia Gravis and Thymoma. Myasthenia Gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease causing muscle weakness, typically affecting older individuals, making it rare in young patients like Akash. Moreover, the presence of Thymoma in conjunction with Myasthenia Gravis is even rarer, occurring in only 10–12% of cases. For the past eight months, Akash faced significant mobility challenges, severely impacting his quality of life. Managing the conditions required him to be on multiple drug regimens, including steroids and immunosuppressants, further affecting his well-being.

In this video, Dr Prriya Eshpuniyani, Consultant-Thoracic OncoSurgeon Fortis Hospital, Vashi, Navi Mumbai talks about case history, challenges, prognosis.
