Psoriasis with polymyositis; a rare combination of two autoimmune diseases

Fayaz Sofi, Ashaq Parrey, Mushtaq Ahmad, Bilal Ahmad

Abstract


Psoriasis with polymyositis although both are autoimmune diseases, they have rarely been reported together. Psoriasis is a papulosquamous skin disease with erythematous papules or plaques and silvery scales. Polymyositis is an autoimmune disease with inflammatory myopathy affecting predominantly proximal muscles. We report a case of psoriasis with steroid resistant polymyositis.

 

Key point
Weather there is similar autoimmune process in the pathogenesis of polymyositis and psoriasis needs to be searched and identified.
