Author(s): Ganesh Singh Dharmshaktu, Tanuja Pangtey
Abstract: Ocular form of myasthenia gravis is a rare disorder clinically presented as fatigue, ptosis and diplopia. The condition and its varied effects may be contributing factors for repetitive and recurrent ankle sprains. Residual ankle instability in such cases has not been studied. We present here a case of ocular myasthenia gravis with frequent tripping leading to medial ankle instability along with tibiofibular syndesmosis injury. A careful clinico-radiological evaluation was followed by appropriate surgical management to successfully treat and alleviate the symptoms.
