BACKGROUND: Clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis with anti-Melanoma Differentiation-Associated gene 5 (MDA5) antibody often presents with severe interstitial lung disease. Although serum ferritin level is known to reflect interstitial lung disease activity, there are few case reports describing this association. CASE PRESENTATION: A 58-year-old man was referred to our outpatient clinic with a 3-week history of cough and respiratory distress. He had erythema over the V area of the neck and a Gottron's sign...

OBJECTIVES: Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs) are a heterogeneous group of rare autoimmune diseases in which both genetic and environmental factors play important roles. To identify genetic factors of IIM including polymyositis, dermatomyositis (DM) and clinically amyopathic DM (CADM), we performed the first genome-wide association study for IIM in an Asian population. METHODS: We genotyped and tested 496 819 single nucleotide polymorphism for association using 576 patients with IIM and 6270 control subjects...

Clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (CADM) is a rare entity that presents with cutaneous manifestations of classic dermatomyositis but without muscle weakness or abnormal muscle enzymes. It is more common in young white and Asian females. A subset of patients with CADM has a specific antibody known as anti-MDA5. These patients have a more aggressive course with distinct cutaneous features, pulmonary involvement and early death. Here, we present the case of a 64-year-old Caucasian male with no significant medical history who was admitted with marked weight loss and a painful rash for 6 months...

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...

We herein report he case of a 61-year-old woman with rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease caused by clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis. Both the serum ferritin and anti-MDA5 antibody levels were elevated at the time of admission. Despite intensive treatment with corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, immunoglobulins and polymyxin B direct hemoperfusion, the patient died 75 days after symptom onset. Over the course of treatment, the anti-MDA5 antibody level continually decreased, while the serum ferritin level increased, suggesting that sequential measurements of the serum ferritin level might be useful for evaluating the treatment responsivity, irrespective of the anti-MDA5 antibody level...

Dermatomyositis (DM) is an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy characterized by the presence of skin lesions and inflammation of skeletal muscles; however, this feature may be absent in amyopathic DM. DM is a rare disease, occurring at any age, and has two peaks of incidence: one in childhood between 5 and 15 years of age and one in adulthood between 40 and 60 years, with a female preponderance. DM has been associated with malignancy; therefore, every newly diagnosed patient should undergo screening investigations, but evidence-based guidelines on their extension are lacking...

BACKGROUND: Rapidly progressive interstitial pneumonias (RPIPs) associated with clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (CADM) are highly resistant to therapy and have a poor prognosis. Multimodal therapies, including direct hemoperfusion using a polymyxin B-immobilized fiber column (PMX-DHP), have a protective effect on RPIPs. We evaluated the effects of PMX-DHP on CADM-associated RPIPs. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 14 patients with CADM-associated RPIPs and acute respiratory failure treated with PMX-DHP, corticosteroids, and immunosuppressive agents...

Anti-melanoma differentiation-associated gene 5 (MDA5) antibody is a specific biomarker in patients with dermatomyositis (DM). Results from several studies that examined the relationship between anti-MDA5 antibody and the demographics, clinical characteristics and laboratory results of DM patients have been conflicting. The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship, if any, of anti-MDA5 antibody with demographics, clinical characteristics and laboratory results of DM patients. PubMed, Web of Science, Embase and the Cochrane Library databases were searched for studies without language restrictions conducted before 16 March 2017...

Amyopathic dermatomyositis (ADM) represents a substantial subset of dermatomyositis (DM). Patients with this symptom of the disorder may present initially to a dermatologist. Amyopathic dermatomyositis shares cutaneous findings with DM and both overlap and differ with respect to other key disease characteristics, including autoantibody profile, associated lung disease, and malignancy risk. Plantar keratoderma is a rare skin finding in DM. We report a case of ADM uniquely marked by the finding of plantar keratoderma, which resolved with oral methotrexate therapy...

In dermatomyositis (DM), anti-melanoma differentiation-associated gene 5 (MDA5) autoantibody (autoAb) marks a subtype with low grade or absent muscle inflammation but frequent and rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease (ILD). The pathogenesis of ILD remains poorly unknown. The aim of the study is to explore whether neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are involved in the development of ILD in DM patients with anti-MDA5 autoAb. Patients with clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (CADM, n = 20), classic dermatomyositis (cDM, n = 30), polymyositis (PM, n = 20), and healthy controls (HC, n = 20) were enrolled...

This study aimed to investigate the multiple values of (18)F-FDG PET/CT in detecting malignant tumors, evaluating myopathy, and determining interstitial lung disease in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathy (IIM). We retrospectively analyzed the data of 38 patients who were examined by (18)F-FDG PET/CT and eventually diagnosed as IIM. We also collected the data of another 22 cases with negative PET/CT as the control. Pulmonary HRCT images were acquired simultaneously with regular (18)F-FDG PET/CT imaging for each patient...

Dermatomyositis is a well-known autoimmune disorder. On the other hand, juvenile amyopathic dermatomyositis (JADM) occurs rather rarely. Here, we report an unusual case in a 9-year-old Turkish boy showing a unilateral linear inflammatory skin lesion that was followed, after 16 months, by the appearance of bilateral disseminated features JADM.

BACKGROUND: The inflammatory myopathies are a heterogeneous group of muscle diseases and comprise polymyositis, dermatomyositis (DM), myopathies associated with cancers, necrotising myositis and inclusion body myositis. DM occasionally exhibits few or no muscular signs: i.e. hypomyopathic/amyopathic DM. Anti-MDA5 dermatomyositis (DM) is a rare form of dermatomyositis that is frequently amyopathic; the prognosis is linked mainly to pulmonary involvement. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 69-year-old woman treated for mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) gastric lymphoma was referred for a bullous eruption...

A 67-year-old woman exhibited chilblain-like erythema on the bilateral auricles, erythema with hyperkeratosis on the sides of fingers and the bilateral elbows, and erythema on the extensor/flexor sides of the finger joints and the iliac regions. Fine crackles were audible on the dorsal side of the bilateral lower lung regions. We diagnosed clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis accompanied by rapidly progressive interstitial pneumonia. While we initiated immunosuppressive therapy, the respiratory failure showed no responses...
