The inflammatory myopathies include a group of diseases characterized by chronic muscle inflammation associated with weakness. There are three main types, polymyositis, inclusion body myositis and dermatomyositis.

Muscle biopsy performed and revealed changes consistent with polymyositis. The patient condition improved dramatically to corticosteroid treatment.
