Abstract

Two previously healthy women developed an inflammatory myopathy before the term of their first pregnancy. Skeletal muscle biopsy led to a diagnosis of T cell-mediated polymyositis. Both babies were healthy, but their serum creatine kinase levels remained elevated for a few months after birth. Their mothers did well after corticosteroid treatment.
