Anti-mitochondrial antibody-associated myositis with eosinophilia and dropped head

Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs) are a heterogeneous group of diseases with the following recognized main entities: dermatomyositis; polymyositis; necrotizing autoimmune myopathy; sporadic inclusion body myositis; and non-specific myositis [1]. Recently, IIM associated with anti-mitochondrial M2 antibodies (AMAs), sometimes called as AMA-associated myositis, has been identified as a new clinical entity [2]. AMA-associated myositis is clinically characterized by a chronic disease course, muscle atrophy, and cardiac involvement [2,3].
