Transient neonatal myasthenia gravis (MG) is observed in babies born to mothers with MG. Hypotony and respiratory distress are the most important warning signs observed in these babies. Anticholinesterases are used in the treatment. In this study, we present a case diagnosed with transient neonatal MG that has developed intestinal perforation after neostigmine treatment.
