Paraspinal and scapular myopathy associated with scleroderma. Patients with scleroderma may develop a restricted form of immune-mediated inflammatory myopathy with a predilection for the paraspinal and scapular muscles, which is poorly responsive to treatment with glucocorticoids and immunosuppressive agents and may require consideration of other treatment modalities.
