DERMATOPOLYMIOSITIS OR WHEN CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS MUST BE ON SYNDROME LEVEL
The patient with the severe course of dermatopolymiositis served as an example for diagnostics, clinical syndromes establishment, and treatment tactics. The importance of the syndrome but not of the nosological diagnosis was marked.
The clinical case confirms that the gold standard of the diagnosis is the morphological one. The cause of the secondary dermatopolymiositis was stated – neoplastic disease. The rest accentuated clinical syndromes are included into the clinic of neoplastic disease. The example shows that not the nosological but the syndrome diagnosis is correct until the nature of the disease is stated.
