Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are chronic, systemic autoimmune diseases, characterized by symmetric and progressive weakness of proximal muscles in the upper and lower extremities. Treatment of the disease presents a complex challenge and it needs practical knowledge. In this review the authors summarize current treatment options, and discuss intravenous immunoglobulin treatment in therapy-unresponsive cases. Relevant data from the international literature is collected, too. Benefits and side effects of this treatment are also disclosed.
