Inflammatory myopathies

Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a heterogeneous group of illnesses whose main feature is muscular weakness and identification of an underlying inflammation in the muscular biopsy. The group includes dermatomyositis, polymyositis and, recently, inclusion body myosotis, which is most probably the least inflammatory, as well being the myopathy most frequently acquired by the over 50s. Although the main target organ is muscle, the skin and lungs, amongst other internal organs, are frequently affected, for which reason inflammatory myopathies are considered to be systemic illnesses.
