Myositis is a rare disease, affecting approximately 50,000 Americans. Myositis is a general term meaning inflammation of the muscles, which can be temporary or chronic. It is critical for patients who suspect they may be suffering from myositis to be evaluated by an experienced myositis specialist.
The doctors at The Johns Hopkins Myositis Center have spent the majority of their medical careers diagnosing, researching and treating myositis.
