Inflammatory Myositis Clinic

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Patients with muscle pain (inflammatory myositis) are seen in the Inflammatory Myositis Clinic. Major diseases seen here include adult and juvenile dermatomyositis, polymyositis and inclusion body myositis. As these disorders can at times involve a variety of organ systems besides muscle, an evaluation involving other specialists is often pursued. Members of the Inflammatory Myositis Clinic conduct research into the causes and treatment of inflammatory myositis in collaboration with other researchers at Mayo Clinic and around the world.
