Abstract

Prominent or isolated weakness of cervical extensor muscles is a relatively rare clinical sign. Commonly, this is known as “dropped-head syndrome”. This abnormal flexion of the head may occur in a variety of neuromuscular diseases and in a few non-neurological disorders as well. The case we describe concerns a 61-year-old woman with dropped-head syndrome as the unique complaint of myasthenia gravis
