Abstract

Clubbing of the fingers is commonly associated with interstitial lung diseases (ILDs). Although ILD occurs in as many as 40% of patients with polymyositis/dermatomyositis (PM/DM), clubbing of the digits has never been reported to occur in patients with PM/DM and ILD. We report the first case of clubbing associated with PM/DM and ILD.
