Abstract

Inflammatory myopathies are a heterogeneous group of myopathies in which there is biopsy-evident inflammation. In its evaluation it is essential to use neurophysiological techniques that provide information on the nature of the process.

This paper reviews the electromigram pattern characteristic of inflammatory myopathies, its diagnostic value, limitations, and some clues on the interpretation of the results of neurophysiological techniques in the assessment of inflammatory myopathies.

Resumen

Las miopatías inflamatorias son un grupo heterogéneo de miopatías en las que existe inflamación en la biopsia. En su evaluación es esencial el uso de técnicas neurofisiológicas que permiten obtener información sobre la naturaleza del proceso.

Este trabajo revisa el patrón electromiográfico característico de las miopatías inflamatorias, su valor diagnóstico, las limitaciones y algunas pistas sobre la interpretación de los resultados de las técnicas neurofisiológicas en la evaluación de las miopatías inflamatorias.
