Calcinosis in juvenile dermatomyositis is influenced by both anti-NXP2 autoantibody status and age at disease onset.

 

The presence of anti-NXP2 autoantibodies substantially increases the risk of calcinosis across all ages and is associated with disease severity. PubMed, Rheumatology (Oxford), 2014 Jul 1. (Also see: Dermatomyositis Symptoms and Calcinosis)
