A soldier presented in Jan 2002 with features of proximal myopathy and diplopia. Clinically he had features of myasthenia gravis, which was confirmed by significantly positive neostigmine test, decremental response on electrophysiological study and raised acetylcholine receptor antibody titres. He also tested positive for HIV during evaluation of a cervical lymph node detected incidentally. He responded well to neostigmine and has remained asymptomatic on follow up.
