Background

Dermatomyositis (DM) is a group of autoimmune diseases characterized by a variable degree of skin symptoms and myopathy. An amyopathic form of DM (ADM) has been described, and more recently, an anti-TIF-1 gamma-positive subtype, characterized by poikiloderma and associated with a relatively high risk of cancer.
