Abstract

The classic skin changes of juvenile DM can occur in the absence of clinical muscle involvement. Physicians are not routinely performing electromyography, muscle biopsy, or magnetic resonance imaging in the assessment of these patients. A significant proportion of patients with ADM will remit without systemic therapy. Optimum treatment needs to be determined through controlled trials.
