The formalism of generalized diffraction integral for paraxial misaligned optical systems is used to investigate the propagation of the Modified Bessel-Gaussian (MBG) beam through a misaligned thin lens. The properties of the propagation of MBG beam traveling through this misaligned ABCD optical system are discussed. A special case of misaligned circular thin lens is illustrated analytically and numerically. The shape of the MBG beam at the exit of the misaligned optical system is unchanged; however the center of the beam is shifted from the propagation axis in correlated manner with the design parameters of the optical system.
