Özet

Background: Immune-mediated necrotising myopathies are characterised clinically by the subacute onset of proximal limb weakness, accompanied by elevated creatinine kinase levels. They are distinguished from other myopathies by the absence of prominent infiltration of the muscle with inflammatory cells in the biopsies.
