  1. lambert-eaton syndrome

    Lambert-Eaton Syndrome, also known as Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS), is a rare autoimmune disorder that affects the nerve cells controlling the muscles. It is characterized by muscle weakness, most noticeable in the legs and hips, often with fatigue, dry mouth, and difficulty with tasks like climbing stairs or rising from a sitting position. This disorder occurs when the immune system attacks the neuromuscular junctions (the junctions where nerves communicate with muscle cells), inhibiting the flow of nerve impulses to the muscles. It is often associated with small cell lung cancer.
