Muscle Involvement in Connective Tissue Disorders: Polyarteritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic Sclerosis, and Sjögren Syndrome


Rushing, Elisabeth J (2013). Muscle Involvement in Connective Tissue Disorders: Polyarteritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic Sclerosis, and Sjögren Syndrome. In: Goebel, Hans H; Sewry, Caroline A; Weller, Roy O. Muscle Disease: Pathology and Genetics. New York: Wiley-Blackwell, 313-315.

Abstract

Connective tissue diseases are multisystem autoimmune disorders that encompass diverse and complex serological and clinicopathological manifestations, including musculoskeletal involvement. The global frequency of concomitant muscle disease is estimated to exceed 50%. Although the histopathological features of myositis in these uncommon disorders are not well documented, they largely resemble those of isolated idiopathic inflammatory myopathy.
