The article presents a study on prevalence of myositis in a cohort of pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients in the southeastern U.S. In this study a cohort of SLE patients in Alabama was evaluated for myositis symptoms, since 2008. It was found that myositis was associated positively with the presence of anti-ribonucleoprotein antibodies, and negatively associated with the presence of anti-double stranded DNA antibodies and hematologic disorders. It concluded that prevalence of myositis in SLE cohort was high.
