Abstract
Objectives. To quantify nailfold capillary density and dimensions in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathy (IIM) and compare them with those in healthy controls; to look for associations with microvascular disease in IIM; and to determine whether nailfold capillary density and dimensions change over time. Methods. Nailfold video microscopy (x300 magnification) was performed on 24 patients with IIM and 35 healthy controls. Capillary density and dimensions (total width and apical width) were quantified. Patients were clinically assessed and disease activity recorded using the Myositis Disease Activity Assessment Tool. Disease severity and physical functio...
