  Abstract :

 Juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) is a rare autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation of the muscle, connective tissue and skin. Although localized edema is seen in juvenile dermatomyositis, generalized edema has been reported rarely. In this article, we report an 11-year-old girl with juvenile dermatomyositis presenting with generalized edema and classic sign and symptoms of juvenile dermatomyositis. In differential diagnosis of generalized edema, JDM should always be kept in mind. Early diagnosis and treatment of those cases by corticosteroids are important to decrease morbidity.
