Abstract

Dermatomyositis, a connective tissue disorder, is an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy characterized by skin manifestation. The diagnosis of dermatomyositis is based on characteristic skin rash, progressive muscle weakness, elevated serum muscle enzymes, abnormal EMG and muscle biopsy findings. Here we present an atypical case of a 68year old lady with all typical clinical findings failed to show response despite proper stepwise management.
