This comprehensive book serves as a guide in the day-to-day management of patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM), with a particular emphasis on adult dermatomyositis (DM), polymyositis (PM), juvenile dermatomyositis, necrotizing myositis, and inclusion body myositis. Practical in nature, it presents IIM concepts in a straightforward fashion, with high-quality figures, algorithms, and flowcharts supplementing each of the expertly authored chapters. The book begins with an introduction to myositis, providing an overview of the myositis basics and what type of patient is affected. Subsequent chapters are organized by the sequence in which a physician often manages myositis, from initial presentation and workup, to diagnosis, treatment, and finally prognostic and long-term outcome factors. The key differentials in various diagnostic studies are thoroughly examined, including electromyography, muscle biopsy, and MRI. Managing Myositis: A Practical Guide is an easy to-read, indispensable resource for internists, rheumatologists, dermatologists, pulmonologists, and neurologists.

This short handbook summarises the clinical features, epidemiology, current treatment paradigms, and ongoing trials for the idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IMM).
Author: Hector Chinoy
Publisher: Oxford University Press
The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) are a rare group of autoimmune diseases, negatively affecting the lives of an estimated 250,000 people worldwide. Delays in diagnosis often occur owing to a lack of recognition of disease presentation, or misdiagnosis, both of which can lead tomuscle atrophy. This new addition to the Oxford Rheumatology Library series focuses on providing a summary of what is currently understood about the epidemiology of myositis, controversies in diagnosis criteria, clinical features, and the current paradigms for treatment and intervention. Designed to bring togetherthe multi-disciplinary involvement of healthcare professionals for IMM patients, this is the first easy-to-navigate guide for the practical management of myositis. This is an essential guide for both physicians and trainees in Rheumatology, Neurology, and Dermatology specialities.
