Weakness of extraocular muscle (EOM) ocurs in close to 90% of myasthenics at disease onset, and at least 15% of all myasthenics will manifest only ocular signs. This article explores functional, physiologic, and antigenic differences between extremitgy muscle and EOM than may contribute to thye frequent involvement of EOM in MG
