For some time the question as to the part played by lactic acid in the chemistry of persons affected with myasthenia gravis has been attracting attention, and the opinion has been growing that disturbances of lactic acid production may be at the bottom of this disease. Two cases of the disease studied by Freisz and Nohos showed in the resting state normal quantities of lactic acid in the blood; after moderate exercise there was a marked increase of the lactic acid content of the blood with a corresponding fall in the blood pH.
