Polymyositis/dermatomyositis are rare autoimmune diseases. Classification is usually performed according to the criteria of Bohan and Peter. The occurrence of myositis-specific autoantibodies has recently been described in inflammatory myopathies. Approximately half of the patients can now be classified by these specific autoantibodies. Several of these autoantibodies (anti-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, anti-SRP, anti-Mi2) are strongly associated with the clinical presentation. We may expect that in the future different subsets of these diseases will be increasingly identified by serum antibodies. We report on a patient with myopathy, pulmonary fibrosis and polysynovitis, a typical clinical presentation of the anti-Jo1 syndrome (anti-synthetase syndrome)
