Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are systemic autoimmune diseases characterized by symmetrical weakness of proximal limb muscles. In the everyday practice it is not easy to treat idiopathic inflammatory myopathies. First-line therapy is based on corticosteroids. If there is no improvement in the symptoms and complaints in two months, a new immunosuppressant therapy has to be initiated. The aim of this summary is to present the biological agent rituximab in the therapy of this condition.
