Muscular Dystrophy & Myositis ( Muscle Inflammation)

It is the disease featuring weakness and inflammation of muscles and muscle pain. The cause of much inflammatory myopathy is unknown i.e. idiopathic. The usual criteria for a diagnosis are weakness in muscles of the head, neck, trunk, upper arms or upper legs. They may be diagnosed by biopsy, MRI or electromyography. The biopsy findings of (i) muscle cell degeneration and regeneration and (ii) chronic inflammatory infiltrates in muscle cells. The goal of treatment is to improve the activities of daily living and muscle strength. The suppression of immune system activity i.e. immunosuppression is the treatment strategy. Every year between 2.18 and 7.7 people per million receive diagnosis. Around 3.2 children per million per year are diagnosed with an average age of onset of seven years.
