Coronary artery disease in dermatomyositis. A case report.


A sixty-two-year-old woman with chronic dermatomyositis (DM) receiving steroid monotherapy developed coronary artery stenosis. She had lung fibrosis and complained of dyspnea, but no ischemia was suggested by electrocardiogram. Ateriographic findings and clinical symptoms of coronary artery disease in DM have not been previously reported.
