A 73-year-old white man presents with left-sided ptosis and diplopia in the absence of ophthalmoplegia, with left hemibody paresthesia. He reports intermittent dysphagia and dizziness for 1 month and diarrhoea for 2 months. Serum and electrodiagnostic studies confirmed the diagnosis of myasthenia gravis. This case highlights the non-classic presentation of myasthenia gravis in the absence of ophthalmoplegia with a unique unexplained hemisensory deficit.
