|Title:||Acute dermatomyositis with subcutaneous generalized edema|
|Author:||de Castro, GRW|
|Abstract:||The authors report a 40-year-old Caucasian man with relapsing muscle and skin involvement of dermatomyositis treated with high-dose corticosteroids, taken orally, and methotrexate and human gamma globulin, both administered intravenously. After 4 months of aggressive treatment, he presented with generalized edema, considered secondary to dermatomyositis. Aggressive immunosuppression did not stop disease progression. The literature concerning anasarca due to inflammatory myopathies is revised.|
