Nerve conduction studies (NCS) in patients with dermatomyositis (DM) or polymyositis (PM).

Peripheral neuropathy in DM/PM often suggests a complication with cancer, other connective tissue diseases, diabetes or carpal tunnel syndrome. From a practical point of view, NCS for DM/PM may help find the underlying disorders. WANG Yue. Chinese Medical Journal 2010;123(5):523-526. (Also see: Dermatomyositis and Polymyositis)
