Polymyositis is a group of muscle disease characterised by progressive muscle inflammation and predominantly muscle weakness. It usually presents subacutely with proximal weakness and mild diffuse muscular pain. Some patients have atypical presentation like early respiratory difficulty, Motor neuron disease (MND), or isolated dysphagia which leads to delay in diagnosis and treatment. We present one such case.
