R3 Dr. Allison Lange published a case report today in BMJ Case Reports. She took care of a patient with a history of dermatomyositis who presented to the hospital with fevers and arm pain. The patient was found to have CMV viremia which then precipitated HLH/macrophage activation syndrome. This case report represents the first such report of CMV viremia causing MAS in a patient with dematomyositis.
Dr. Lange wrote this report with Dr. Kazi (our program director), Dr Chen (of hematopathology), and Dr. Barnes (infectious diseases). Great work!
