Dermatomyositis

Dermatomyositis (DM) is a connective-tissue disease related to polymyositis (PM) that is characterized by inflammation of the muscles and the skin.

Patients with new onset of poly/dermatomyositis during pregnancy have a high risk of fetal loss. In patients with controlled disease, maternal and fetal outcomes are good with 80% fetal survival.
