Author(s): Bogna Grygiel-Górniak, Oscar Nicholas Godtfredsen, Gunnar Nyborg Eid, Nicholas Werczak, Mariusz Puszczewicz
We report a patient with overlap syndrome (systemic sclerosis (SSc) and polymyositis (PM)). The heterogeneous nature of systemic sclerosis may lead to a great diversity in the clinical presentation of the disease. With this case report we aim to demonstrate clinical manifestations of systemic sclerosis and polymyositis in an overlap-syndrome, with support from antibody profile and laboratory data.
