In this study, clinical, histopathological and immunological profiles were analysed in ten patients with inflammatory myopathies. Polymyositis and dermatomyositis were more common than other forms of inflammatory myopathies. The pathogenetic mechanisms and distinguishing histopathological and immunological profiles between polymyositis and dermatomyositis have been highlighted.
