Autoimmune necrotizing myopathy after statin discontinuation

Autoimmune necrotizing myopathy after statin discontinuation

BMJ Case Reports 12(5)

We report a case of autoimmune necrotizing myopathy related to statin use in a 70-year-old woman who came to the hospital because of progressive lower extremity weakness. Laboratory, electromyography and muscle biopsy results were consistent with autoimmune necrotising myopathy. The patient was treated with intravenous immunoglobulin with improvement in muscle strength.
