Hello, folks. My friend has been diagnosed with the disease called polymyositis. I must admit that I have never heard about this disease before. Is it common? What is its prevalence? I would really appreciate if someone gives me some more info on this. Thank you in advance for all your replies.

Hi. Polymyositis is the autoimmune disease. It affects muscle fibers. If it is combined with skin rash, then we talk about dermatomyositis. I think it is not so common disease. The exact prevalence is not known. Approximately, it affects 50 to 60 people per million. I think your friend should consult a specialist for his treatment options. I hope this helps. Bye!
