  • Multinodular polymyositis in a patient with human immunodeficiency and hepatitis C virus coinfection MUSCLE & NERVE Richardson, S. J., LOPEZ, F., Rojas, S., Cho, S. H., Holodniy, M., Herndier, B., Katz, J. 2001; 24 (3): 433-437


    We report a patient who developed multiple inflammatory muscle masses and generalized polymyositis in the setting of combined human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of muscles showed patchy edema which was particularly intense within the nodular masses. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) showed no evidence of either virus within muscle. This report reviews earlier literature on muscle nodules associated with myositis and discusses the differential diagnosis of muscle masses in HIV infection.
