Dermatomyositis is an inflammatory myopathy of not fully understood etiology that may be associated with neoplasms. Representing a systemic autoimmune disease, the hallmarks of its clinical presentation are seen as cutaneous and skeletal muscle manifestations. The main cutaneous signs are represented by heliotrope and the Gottron's papules, while the muscular compromise is observed by proximal weakness and dysphagia. Diagnosis relies upon clinical history, physical examination and laboratory tests, and the first-line treatment is based on the use of systemic corticosteroid. The present manuscript reports a case of paraneoplastic dermatomyositis secundary to mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma, an extremely rare association. Considering the potential aggressiveness of such tumor, the screening of occult neoplasms in dermatomyositis should also include the gallbladder assessment, aiming the early diagnosis and prompt specific treatment. Physicians must be aware of such possible association, once early diagnosis positively impacts in prognosis.
Keywords: Dermatomyositis, gallbladder, paraneoplastic, mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma.
