Does anyone know if there's a link between pectus evacutum(?) (sunken chest) and congenital myasthenia?

    Hi @ElmaD - & welcome to the community. As far as I'm aware there's no link between the 2.
    Pectus excavatum is most commonly linked to some inherited connective tissue disorders, most often Marfan Syndrome, but also Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome & Osteogenesis imperfecta.
