Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a group of rare, autoimmune, diseases typically involving striate muscle and also variously affecting several other systems or organs, such as joints, skin, lungs, heart and gastrointestinal tract. IIM are mainly characterised by subacute onset and chronic course and are burdened by significant morbidity and mortality. Despite the rarity of these conditions, several efforts have been undertaken in the last years to better understand their pathogenesis, as well as to achieve a more precise classification and to define the optimal therapeutic approach. The aim of this review is to provide an up-to-date digest of the most relevant studies published on this topic over the last year.

Abstract

Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a group of rare, autoimmune, diseases typically involving striate muscle and also variously affecting several other systems or organs, such as joints, skin, lungs, heart and gastrointestinal tract. IIM are mainly characterised by subacute onset and chronic course and are burdened by significant morbidity and mortality. Despite the rarity of these conditions, several efforts have been undertaken in the last years to better understand their pathogenesis, as well as to achieve a more precise classification and to define the optimal therapeutic approach. The aim of this review is to provide an up-to-date digest of the most relevant studies published on this topic over the last year.
