  • Dermatomyositis

    Later she developed progressive, symmetrical proximal muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Within a month after the operation, myalgia and rash, including Gottron's papules, developed, and skeletal-muscle enzymes elevated, so she was diagnosed with probable DM according[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We diagnosed DM based on the presence of myalgia, Gottron's papules, and anti-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase antibody positivity in the patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    A 62-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with malaise, lethargy and proximal muscle weakness. She had a similar presentation in childhood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most common presenting features were characteristic rash, weakness, tiredness, Gottron's patches and myalgia.[academic.oup.com] He considers that this may be dermatomyositis and tests for proximal muscle weakness.[mhmedical.com]
