Abstract: We report a patient with dermatomyositis (DM) complicated with progressive pleural effusion and ascites. A 40-year-old woman was hospitalized in our department because of severe myalgia and dysphagia, complicated with pleural effusion and massive ascites. Elevated muscle enzymes, Gottron's papules, and electromyography (EMG) confirmed the diagnosis of DM. Combined immunosuppressive treatment consisting of intravenous immunoglobulin (IV-IG), intravenous-cyclophosphamide (IV-CY) and tacrolimus resolved her myopathy and dysphagia as well as pleural effusion and massive ascites. Her clinical course and the absence of other factors that cause pleural effusion and ascites suggest that these symptoms were related to the pathophysiology of DM.
