Abstract

Dermatomyositis is an auto-immune inflammatory myopathy that primarily affects the skin and muscle and can be triggered by exposure to various environmental factors. We present a patient with active syphilis infection who developed dermatomyositis and discuss the significance of anti-NXP2 autoantibody positivity.
