Özet

Objectives: To investigate the correlations between the 6-minute walk test and disease severity, pulmonary functions, and respiratory muscle performance in patients with generalized myasthenia gravis (MG) and to determine whether MG disease severity, pulmonary functions, and respiratory muscle performance contribute to 6-minute walk test distance in generalized MG.
