The heterogeneous group of idiopathic inflammatory myositis (IIM) consists of rare systemic autoimmune diseases. The hallmark of these disorders is the autoimmune process mediated progressive weakness of the proximal muscles. The Dermatomyositis/Polymyositis Outpatient Clinic has been started its activity in 1985 at the 3rd Department of Internal Medicine, University of Debrecen. Since then, more than 300 patients has been diagnosed and followed up. Our aim was the critical analysis of clinical aspects of IIMs in these patients, focusing on the clinical course, survival, medium- and long-term functional outcome and quality of life, and to evaluate patients with uncommon forms of IIMs, such as juvenile and cancer-associated myositis.
