Caveats
Clinical variables IMNM vs diverse other myopathiesa (univariate analysis)

  • Dermatomyositis (DM), sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM), polymyositis (PM), mitochondrial myopathies (MtM), limb girdle muscular dystrophies (LGMD), myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD), nonspecific inflammatory myopathies (NSIM).
  • Values were significant p < 0.05
  • Odds ratios < 1 are protective against IMNM = immune mediated necrotizing myopathy.
