It has also been classified as an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy along with polymyositis, necrotizing autoimmune myositis, cancer-associated myositis, and sporadic inclusion body myositis.

Myopathy

Some conditions, such as myositis, can be considered both neuromuscular and musculoskeletal.

Statin-associated autoimmune myopathy

Alternate causes of myositis and necrotizing myopathy must first be excluded.

Creatine kinase

Elevation of creatine kinase in blood is indicative of myositis.
Clinically, creatine kinase is assayed in blood tests as a marker of damage of CK-rich tissue such as in myocardial infarction (heart attack), rhabdomyolysis (severe muscle breakdown), muscular dystrophy, autoimmune myositides, and acute kidney injury.
