Dermatomyotitis can lead to tissue damage that can be life threatening, depending on the type of dermatomyotitis you have been diagnosed with.

We had another women who asked a similar question, and one of our Moderators provided excellent information: What can I expect from mild dermatamyositis diagnosis long term?.

Please review the information from the above article, and let us know if you have any additional questions!
