Polymyositis is uncommon in childhood. Unlike dermatomyositis, which is common in pediatric age group, skin involvement is lacking in polymyositis. We report an 8-year-old boy who presented with anasarca as the initial complaint. This presentation has been rarely reported before in the pediatric literature.
