A 58-year-old man with anti-Jo-1 syndrome and renal cell carcinoma: a case report and discussion

Conn Med. 2007 Mar;71(3):151-3.


The association of inflammatory myopathies with malignancy and interstitial lung disease has been well accepted. Polymyositis can be associated with interstitial lung disease or malignancy, although it is rare for all three entities to occur simultaneously at the initial presentation. We report a patient who was found to have concurrent polymyositis, interstitial lung disease, with anti-Jo-1 antibody, and renal cell carcinoma.
