I remember, not that long ago, inclusion body myositis evoked resignation, for pts & clinicians. A bizarre condition where standard of care was counselling/mitigation Now there hope might be on the horizon Exciting to see the science & a feasible target #ACR21 ABSTL07 @RheumNow https://t.co/CYiAXIEA0Q

Dr Preger report 9 novel aminoacyl tRNA synthetases in IIM patients. May these allow us to spare more patients biopsy? Abstr#0001 #ACR21 @RheumNow https://t.co/ikNXCEOeuj

Dr Bass on the ICI M triad: Myositis, Myocarditis, Myasthenia--> Strongly a/w morbidity & mortality ~0.4% frequency, mortality 22% when myositis alone ~Overlap (+ myasthenia or myocarditis) more common w/ combination ICI, mortality 42% #ACR21 #ACRAmbassador https://t.co/g50tzAYhlS

If obvious dermatomyositis, you don’t need EMG for dx but may use for severity of involvement or if failing Rx or r/o steroid myopathy. For ?polymyositis ALWAYS do bx and often do EMG as broad differential #ACR21 @RheumNow https://t.co/L1xu3OuRYJ

@KatGilekMD @RichardPAConway @RheumNow @drhectorchinoy EMG/NCS can help uncover various neurological disorders including muscle dystrophies. Obviously it depends on center and expertise. Both MRI and EMG are useful and have different complementary utilities in Myositis. Many centers are not able to perform or interpret MRI reliably.

@NU_Rheum_MSK_US @RichardPAConway @drhectorchinoy @RheumNow Muscle ultrasound can be very useful but it is not ready for prime time currently to be used to do muscle biopsies. Perhaps in few years once we know how to target the muscle for biopsy.
