Two cases of acute myasthenia gravis associated with pregnancy are presented. The first developed in the puerperium following normal labour, and the second was precipitated by Curare used in delivery by Caesarean section. Both were young females who had had normal ante natal courses. The association between pregnancy and myasthenia gravis is reviewed, and also the drugs which may precipitate the disease. A plea is made for careful monitoring of patients receiving these drugs, until their reaction is established.
