Dermatomyositis (DM) is a malignancy-associated inflammatory connective tissue disease which involves muscles and skin. It accompanies many cancer types.

Presentation with DM induces rapid and aggressive progression and emphasizes the importance of more comprehensive malignancy screening in these patients.
