Abstract

We report the successful use of sodium thiosulfate in a patient with juvenile dermatomyositis complicated by ulcerative skin disease and progressive calcinosis. This therapy may have a role in improving calcinosis, even if more studies are necessary to determine the safety and efficacy of this treatment in juvenile dermatomyositis-related calcinosis.
