Juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) is the most common subtype of idiopathic inflammatory myopathies in childhood. Gottron's papules, shawl sign, periorbital heliotrope rash, and periungual telengiectasis are characteristic skin findings of the disease. Besides characteristic skin involvement, some other skin findings, such as angioedema, may be seen prior or in the course of the disease. The presence of angioedema in JDM is emphasized in this report.
