WATTIEZ1, Víctor et al. Dermatomyositis associated with malignancy. Rev. Nac. (Itauguá) [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.1, pp.70-77. ISSN 2072-8174.

Dermatomyositis is a systemic disease characterized primarily by the presence of inflammatory skin disorders and striated muscle. In some cases it constitutes a paraneoplastic syndrome, so diagnosis requires a thorough search of the likely association with cancer.We present three cases of dermatomyositis associated with malignancies, two women with gynecologic cancer and a man with stomach cancer. One of the women also had a myelodysplastic syndrome. In two cases dermatomyositis was after the diagnosis of cancer and in one, the findings were simultaneous.

Keywords : Dermatomyositis, paraneoplasticsyndrome, dermatomyositis, myelodysplasticsyndrome, cancer.
