A Case Report of Recurrent Focal Myositis Confined to Both Calves
Abstract
Focal myositis is a pseudotumor of soft tissue characterized by the selective involvement of a single muscle by the inflammatory process, and is a rare clinical entity. We report a patient who had developed pain at both calves fourteen months earlier and had completely spontaneous resolution within several weeks and recurrently developed similar pain on both calves and was revealed as findings consistent with focal myositis in MRI and biopsy, but not in serologic and EMG study. Because of its severe nature of pain and extensive time required for spontaneous resolution, the patient was treated with high dose steroid therapy, which led to an almost immediate improvement of symptoms.
Key Words: Focal myositis, MRI, EMG, Steroid therapy
