A recent study recommends those diagnosed with dermatomyositis or polymyositis be screened for interstitial lung disease. 23% of 156 patients studied in this series developed interstitial lung disease. The study was headed by Dr I. Marie from the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Rouen-Boisguillaume, Rouen in France. The investigators suggest that more aggressive treatment of the polymyositis/dermatomyositis may be warrented in the subgroup of patients who develop interstitial lung disease.
