Abstract

Dermatomyositis is an autoimmune inflammatory myopathy characterized by unique cutaneous features. Gottron's papules are pathognomonic, lichenoid papules that can be found overlying the joints of the dorsal hand. Papules on the palms of the hand are less commonly seen, especially in the pediatric age group. Recognition of these inverse Gottron's papules as a sign of dermatomyositis is important as they may be the only cutaneous feature and may be a clue of underlying interstitial lung disease.
