Abstract

Central nervous system (CNS) complications are rarely reported in either juvenile or adult onset inflammatory myositides, such as dermatomyositis andpolymyositis. We report two children, aged 4 and 10 yr respectively, with a diagnosis of juvenile dermatomyositis, both of whom subsequently developed clinical features of severe CNS involvement. possibly consistent with cerebral vasculopathy. One child died from apparent brainstem involvement; theother developed seizures, pseudoseizures and clinical depression which responded to aggressive immunosuppression. Although the vasculopathy or vasculitis underlying this disorder is known to have a systemic distribution, CNSinvolvement has rarely been reported and may be under-recognized.
