We report on three cases of patients whose primary symptoms of myasthenia gravis were related to the upper aerodigestive tract. Symptoms had been present unrecognized in all patients for up to three years, and one patient subsequently developed a myasthenic crisis. We highlight the clinical features of myasthenia gravis to allow its prompt recognition in patients presenting to the ENT surgeon or physician.
