MG and Lupus



My sister in law was recently diagnosed with MG. Her mother and aunt have Lupus. I also know of another friend who has a family member with MG whose mother had Lupus. Is this common in families to have one member with Lupus and another with MG?


It is common to have several family members with Lupus because there are genetic factors involved in the development of this disease. Unfortunately, I don`t know what disease MG stands for.
