MARCHIORI, Paulo E. et al. Dermatopolymyositis: evaluation of 63 patients. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1987, vol.45, n.2, pp. 137-142. ISSN 0004-282X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1987000200006.
Sixty-three patients with dermatopolymyositis were evaluated from the clinical, laboratory and therapeutical aspects during a period of 15 years: 39 are womem and 24 men. The mean age was 36.8 ± 15.6 years. No correlation was observed between clinical and isolated therapeutics employed; when corticosteroids and cytolytic drugs were used simultaneously, the clinical response was satisfactory. No special fact was seen that can predict the therapeutical response.
