Abstract

A 51 yo man presented with weakness and constitutional symptoms, found on labs to have EJ-antibody antisynthetase syndrome. Myopathy is usually a late manifestation of Antisynthetase syndrome and is steroid-responsive, however in our case it occurred earlier. It is important to consider Antisynthetase syndrome in patients presenting with inflammatory myopathy.
