Myasthenia gravis

I've noticed this poster around and not ever made the leap to look into what it was advertising (don't think that is the most appropriate word here). Perhaps I was avoiding staring at it. Can't be rude to a poster though so that doesn't make much sense. 
Anyway, turns out it is about myasthenia gravis - I studied this last year and then forgot about it.
The poster isn't particularly representative of the disease, it is more common in women than men and rarely effects children. Plus, there are more signs other than a dull facial expression and ptosis...
