Abstract


The study presents the results of a complex neuropsychological examination of patients with myasthenia gravis, which revealed intellectual disorders in 36.6% of cases, i.e., violations of memory processes, decreasing short-term memory level, and rapid deterioration of attention. A study of patients with myasthenia gravis with thymoma (before thymectomy) and patients with disease duration of more than 10 years found more pronounced memory and attention disorders (р < 0.05).
