Title: Acute dermatomyositis with subcutaneous generalized edema
Author: de Castro, GRW

Bertolo, MB
Costallat, LTL
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.
