Özet

We here report a 44-year-old female patient who is the first documented case of cervical carcinoma with amyopathic dermatomysitis (ADM). The association of ADM with malignancy is clearly stated in the literature. This patient first presented with classic cutaneous findings of dermatomyositis with no signs and symptoms of muscle involvement for the first 7 months following the diagnosis. When this case has been worked up for malignancy by invasive procedures such as cervical cone biopsy, an increase in muscle enzymes and exacerbation of skin findings were detected.
