Bottom Line: It is commonly seen in the periphery of the lungs.Myasthenia gravis is generally associated with mediastinal malignancies and rarely associated with adenocarcinoma of the lung.We present a case of a 38-year-old male nonsmoker with rapidly progressive adenocarcinoma of the lung associated with myasthenia gravis, a patient whom expired within 27 days of hospital admission and diagnosis.

ABSTRACT
Adenocarcinoma of the lung is the most common form of lung cancer in nonsmokers. It is commonly seen in the periphery of the lungs. Myasthenia gravis is generally associated with mediastinal malignancies and rarely associated with adenocarcinoma of the lung. We present a case of a 38-year-old male nonsmoker with rapidly progressive adenocarcinoma of the lung associated with myasthenia gravis, a patient whom expired within 27 days of hospital admission and diagnosis.

fig4: Biopsy of mass showing strongly CK7 positive.

Mentions: On hospital day two, the patient was taken for CT guided biopsy of the mediastinal mass. Pathologic analysis of the sample was read as adenocarcinoma of the lung, poorly differentiated. Immunohistochemical stains showed positive for CK7 (Figure 4) and TTF1 (Figure 5) and negative for P63 and Napsin A markers.
