Paraspinal and scapular myopathy associated with scleroderma

1 post in this topic

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. Rojana-Udomsart A. (PubMed) J Clin Neuromuscul Dis. 2010 Jun;11(4):213-22. (Also see: Scleroderma in Overlap and Myopathies)
