What Is in the Myopathy Literature?

This edition concentrates on inflammatory myopathies with reports of reclassification of polymyositis, cancer associations, evaluation of subclinical cardiac involvement, myositis-specific and -associated antibodies, and immune checkpoint inhibitor myositis. A number of reports address sporadic late-onset nemaline myopathy and point out its diagnostic difficulty and the importance of identifying an associated monoclonal gammopathy that is likely of clinical significance and may warrant aggressive immunotherapy. Finally, treatment of nondystrophic channelopathies is addressed.
