Lunchtime meeting in Truro on Dermatomyositis with a presentation of two cases. Excellent reminder of this condition which seems to be very popular at lunchtime meetings wherever you go.

The additional images and differential diagnosis slides were particularly good and came from DermNet NZ.

There's also a good example of how the rash appears on darker skin at BMJ Case Reports1.
