OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the presence of dyslipidaemia in JDM and its possible risk factors. METHODS: Twenty-five JDM patients were compared to 25 healthy controls according to demographic data, body composition, fasting lipoproteins, glycaemia, insulin, antibodies and muscle enzymes. JDM scores were assessed: CMAS, MMT, DAS, MYOACT and MYTAX. RESULTS: Abnormal lipid profile was found in nine patients and four controls (36% vs. 16%, p=0.196). JDM patients demonstrated significant higher levels of triglycerides (TG) [80(31-340) vs. 61(19-182) mg/dL, p=0.011] and higher frequency of abnormal levels of high density lipoproteins (HDL) (28% vs. 4%, p=0.04) when compared to controls. JDM patients with.
