Good afternoon, I have a strange question. Is it possible to determine if a person has myasthenia gravis just by looking at him or her, and if it is, do you know whrere I can see a picture of such a person? Thanks for taking time to even consider such a query.

Thank you for using Healthcare Magic.
It is not possible to tell just by looking at someone whether they have myasthenia gravis. Many people with this condition do not look any different from normal especially if they are on treatment. However, one of the signs which may be noticed is drooping of the eyelids, either one or both.
