Dermatomyositis is one of the idiopathic inflammatory myopathies, which is characterized with specific skin manifestations, and considered as an autoimmune disease. Dermatomyositis is a heterogeneous disorder with various presences, severities and characteristics of myositis, dermatitis, and interstitial lung disease. Our and others’ data showed that myositis-specific autoantibodies have been associated with distinct clinical features. This article reviewed the epidemiology and characteristic clinical features of the different types of antibody-associated dermatomyositis in adult and juvenile patients, which include the severity of myopathy, the potential complication of interstitial lung disease, potential association with malignancies, and characteristic cutaneous manifestations.
