Dermatomyositis and polymyositis patients have an increased risk of developing cancers. We have assessed the diagnostic values of serum tumor markers for the detection of solid cancer in dermatomyositis/polymyositis patients. Serum carcinoembryonic antigen, CA15-3, CA19-9, and CA125 were assayed by immunoradiometric methods in 102 dermatomyositis/polymyositis patients. All the patients had complete physical examination, chest X-ray, echocardiogram, gastrointestinal tract endoscopic explorations… CONTINUE READING
