Abstract

In this edition, we provide a detailed summary of an informative book, “GBS100: Celebrating a Century of Progress in Guillain–Barré Syndrome” developed by the Peripheral Nerve Society to honor the centenary of the original paper on Guillain–Barré Syndrome. We also review various studies in myasthenia gravis including: management with rituximab; the efficacy of early fast-acting treatment with corticosteroids; and various dosing strategies for tacrolimus. Finally, we review new studies including: the potential pathogenesis, risk factors, and functional decline of patients with inclusion body myositis; MxA immunoreactivity in dermatomyositis; diagnostic approaches for evaluating patients with myalgia, fatigue, and exercise intolerance; MRI patterns in genetic muscle disease; and MRI as an outcome measure in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
