Abstract: Case reports describe exacerbation myasthenia gravis (MG) with fluoroquinolones in patients with and without a previous diagnosis of MG. Described is a case of moxifloxacin-induced MG in a patient with known MG. This is the first case report to describe moxifloxacin-induced MG and provide laboratory data supporting a drug-induced etiology.
