ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Juvenile Dermatomyositis

History: Steroid dependent child with systemic weakness and established diagnosis presents with abdominal pain. Later clinicians supplied additional history of hematuria.

Findings: Plain films of the extremities demonstrate diffuse calcinosis compatible with established diagnosis of juvenile dermatomyositis. CT scan performed to evaluate abdominal pain shows extensive pneumatosis of the right colon at the hepatic flexure. Free abdomenal air is noted. Assymetric perfusion of the kidneys was incidentally discovered and confirmed with repeat delayed scanning of the abdomen done to look for free abdominal air.
