Dermatomyositis (DM) is a rare autoimmune disease that causes symmetrical and predominantly proximal muscle weakness in the limbs and typical skin lesions. Its prevalence increased during the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Viral infections may cause autoimmunity and trigger the pathogenesis of myositis. We present the case of a man with a long history of myalgia and muscle weakness, who was initially diagnosed with post-COVID-19 myalgia and subsequently developed progressive muscle weakness. Biochemical and muscle biopsy results confirmed DM. The patient responded favorably to the course of steroid treatment.

Keywords: Dermatomyositis, immunity, COVID-19

Dermatomiyozit (DM), ekstremitelerde simetrik ve ağırlıklı olarak proksimal kas güçsüzlüğüne ve tipik deri lezyonlarına neden olan nadir bir otoimmün hastalıktır. Koronavirüs hastalığı-2019 (COVİD-19) pandemisi sırasında prevalansı artmıştır. Viral enfeksiyonlar otoimmüniteye neden olabilir ve miyozit patogenezini tetikleyebilir. Çalışmamızda uzun bir miyalji ve kas güçsüzlüğü öyküsü olan, başlangıçta COVİD-19 sonrası miyalji tanısı konan ve ardından ilerleyici kas güçsüzlüğü gelişen bir erkek olgusunu sunuyoruz. Biyokimyasal ve kas biyopsisi sonuçları DM’yi doğruladı. Hasta steroid tedavisine olumlu yanıt verdi.
