Abstract: OBJECTIVE:The anti-PM/Scl autoantibody has been described in patients with scleromyositis. However, there are scant studies evaluating its prevalence and reactivity in dermatomyositis and polymyositis. METHOD: A cross-sectional, single center study evaluating the anti-PM/Scl autoantibody in 85 dermatomyositis and 32 polymyositis patients, without overlapping syndrome, was conducted between 2000 and 2016. Clinical data and complementary examinations were reviewed from electronic medical records with pre-paramet… Show more

“…This pattern of onset with isolated symptoms and incomplete forms of the disease as well as the similarity of ASS to other autoimmune diseases can result into possible diagnostic mistakes for patients with ASS. Alves et al (18) observed that patients with dermatomyositis and polymyositis with the presence of autoantibodies anti-PM/Scl demonstrated a pattern of clinical presentation similar to that of ASS, confusing the diagnosis, which is the reason we also elected to exclude patients with anti-PM/ Scl autoantibodies in this study. When a patient presents with joint involvement, the pattern is a peripheral symmetric polyarthritis, similar to that of rheumatoid arthritis (19).…”
