Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs) are heterogeneous disorders that affect the skeletal muscles. Polymyositis, dermatomyositis, and inclusion body myositis are major IIM subsets. Immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy became recognized as a potentially new IIM subset. Since the new classification criteria published by the International Myositis Classification Criteria Project have higher sensitivity and specificity for IIM classification and subclassification than the previous criteria, they should help precise diagnosis...

Rhabdomyolysis is a syndrome of muscle necrosis with subsequent release of intracellular content into the blood. There are various causes for rhabdomyolysis that include trauma, medications and rarely autoimmune conditions such as autoimmune myositis. Antisynthetase syndrome is an autoimmune condition characterized by positive antisynthetase antibody, myopathy, lung disease and arthritis. To our knowledge, rhabdomyolysis in antisynthetase syndrome has not been reported in the literature. In this report, we present a patient who presented with features of rhabdomyolysis and was diagnosed with antisynthetase syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Steroid therapy, a key therapy for inflammatory, allergic, and immunological disorders, is often associated with steroid myopathy as one of the side effects. Steroid therapy is considered the first-line therapy for myositis; however, there have been no reports strictly comparing the muscle mass in patients with myositis before and after steroid therapy. Thus, it is currently unclear whether steroid therapy for such patients affects muscle volume in addition to muscle strength...

BACKGROUND: Dermatomyositis is a humoral-mediated inflammatory myopathy with symmetrical proximal muscle weakness and dermatological manifestations such as Gottron's papules, heliotrope rash, periungual abnormalities, and flagellate erythema. Erythroderma is a severe and potentially life-threatening dermatological condition with diffuse erythema and scaling involving more than 90% of the skin surface area. Poikiloderma vasculare atrophicans refers to mottled hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation of the skin with in-between telangiectases and areas of atrophy and is considered a variant of mycosis fungoides...

BACKGROUND Chronic intake of high-dose corticosteroids is associated with multiple adverse clinical effects, including hypertension, insulin resistance, impaired wound healing, immunosuppression, myopathy, and osteoporosis. In cases of autoimmune disease, use of steroid-sparing treatment modalities is preferred over chronic steroid therapy to limit these side effects. Glucocorticoid-induced myopathy is a less common side effect of chronic steroid use in patients treated with <10 mg/day of prednisone. However, doses exceeding 40-60 mg/day can induce clinically significant myopathy and weakness...

Muscle atrophy occurs when glucocorticoid steroids are administered in pharmacological doses or in Cushing syndrome, and such pathological condition is termed as steroid myopathy. Its molecular mechanism is clarified from the study of the gene expression regulation mechanism mediated by steroid receptors in skeletal muscle, progressing to translational research and also addressing the mechanism by which steroids participate in the regulation of whole body energy metabolism via skeletal muscle.

Esophageal stricture occurs at a high rate after endoscopic submucosal dissection, especially after entire circumferential dissection, leading to poor quality of life. This retrospective cohort study evaluated the stricture rate in circumferential mucosal defect cases following modified steroid administration. We enrolled 22 consecutive patients who underwent entire circumferential endoscopic submucosal dissection for superficial esophageal cancer between April 2010 and April 2015 at our hospital. Until January 2013, a systemic steroid-prednisolone-was administered at 30 mg/day and tapered over 8 weeks in the original method group (original group)...

A 59-year-old man presented with proximal myopathy, myalgia, and weight loss, with the initial markedly elevated serum creatine kinase at 11,000 U/L. Due to his refusal for muscle biopsy, he was initially treated as inflammatory myositis and responded well with the corticosteroids. However, he subsequently had a relapse of the symptoms with more extensive systemic involvement, i.e., hypercalcemia, lymphadenopathy and subcutaneous nodules. Finally, a biopsy of the thigh and subcutaneous nodule revealed non-caseating granulomatous inflammation, consistent with sarcoidosis...

Background: Dermatomyositis is an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy that has been established as one of the many paraneoplastic phenomena. Cardiac involvement can occur with dermatomyositis but has rarely been reported in the literature because symptoms are usually subclinical. Case Report: A 72-year-old female presented with generalized weakness for 1 month after a recent diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma. Her weakness was attributed to a myopathic process that was identified as dermatomyositis after muscle biopsy...

Dermatomyositis is an inflammatory myopathy of unknown aetiology. Muscle involvement may eventuate later in the disease course in some patients, who may present with typical skin disease without clinical signs of myopathy and are referred to as dermatomyositis sine myositis. A 48 year old female presented with intermittent urticaria like rashes, diffuse asymmetrical swelling of proximal limbs, pain in small joints of hands and fatiguability. Initial laboratory work-up for immune markers was negative. Three years later, she developed heliotrope rash and periorbital oedema with no evidence of muscle weakness and was labeled as amyopathic dermatomyositis...

INTRODUCTION: Steroid myopathy is a well-known sign of endogenous Cushing's syndrome as well as a side effect of glucocorticoid administration. The clinical finding of muscle weakness and the clinical inspection of the muscle size are the most commonly used diagnostic tools, sometimes in combination with needle electromyography, but there are no means to detect the myopathy before the appearance of clinical or electrodiagnostic signs. Until now, no guidelines have been produced for a disease-specific evaluation of muscle impairment in patients with Cushing's syndrome...

Pheochromocytomas in pregnancy are rare but potentially lethal. Even rarer is the combination of pheochromocytoma in pregnancy with subsequent development of ectopic Cushing's syndrome. We report a 36-year-old woman, previously diagnosed with essential hypertension, who developed severe hypertension in pregnancy complicated by insulin-dependent gestational diabetes. A cesarean section was performed at 32 weeks following a hypertensive crisis after routine administration of betamethasone. Postnatal persistence of signs and symptoms of catecholamine excess led to the diagnosis of a left adrenal pheochromocytoma...
