What is Juvenile Myositis?

Juvenile myositis, including juvenile dermatomyositis and juvenile polymyositis, is a group of rare and life-threatening autoimmune diseases, in which the body’s immune system attacks its own cells and tissues.

Information for the Newly Diagnosed

This session is for newly diagnosed families and covers JM basics, common treatments, sun protection, partnering with your medical team, keeping track of medical records, preparing for doctors’ visits, and seeking support.
