Spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage is a lethal cause of acute abdomen that is most frequently related to drugs, coagulopathy and intra‐abdominal tumors. In patients with polymyositis and dermatomyositis, acute abdomen is attributed to intestinal vasculitis causing ischemia, ulceration or perforation. Spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage, however, has rarely been reported in patients with polymyositis. We report the case of a 65‐year‐old woman with newly diagnosed polymyositis and… Expand

TLDR
A 42-yr-old woman with dermatomyositis had two myocardial infarctions, episodes of acute chest pain and an acute lung oedema, which revealed a coincidence of small-vessel disease and vasospastic angina as a cause for the severe cardiac symptoms. Expand
