Autoimmune Myositis is a disease caused by chronic inflammation of striated muscle (polymyositis) and sometimes skin (dermatomyositis). Autoimmune Myositis can occur at an age but affects nearly 2.5 times more women than men. Autoimmune Myositis is more frequent in black than white communities with a 4:1 incidence ratio. Autoimmune Myositis is related to any autoimmune diseases that cause inflammation in the muscles however twin studies suggest a genetic predisposition, yet no associations with environmental factors have been identified. Treatment for Autoimmune Myositis can be treated with immune system suppressors. Autoimmune Myositis can be induced in the lab and is referred to as autoimmune experimental myositis.
