The authors discuss a rare case of a 25-year-old female patient having dermatomyositis associated with celiac disease and ulcerative colitis. The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are systemic, chronic, immune-mediated diseases characterized by proximal, symmetrical muscle weakness. Many examples from the literature refer that celiac disease occurs more often in patients with myositis than in the general population, but its association with ulcerative colitis is a real rarity in the international literature. Orv. Hetil., 2014, 155(26), 1033-1038.
