Fetal blood cells contain a surface antigen (a protein - called rh factor) that looks foreign to the mother. The mother makes antibodies to that protein which then pass through the placenta and attack the baby's blood cells, causing a dangerous anemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is an abnormal rns with a >12% decrement (not done on an area that is really weak) specific for myasthenia gravis? Please assume patient has signs and symptoms of generalized mg, as this is the case.
Not necessarily: Really require more than one area of decrement, and even so, nonspecific as can be seen with metabolic problems, muscle disease, neuropathies, and even can be artifactual. Maybe a tensilon test would be helpful, but of course, better approach via anti-neuromuscular junctional antibody or anti-musk results. In the end, if responding to mestinon, (pyridostigmine) may be a good confirmatory sign, also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
