Abstract

Statins are widely prescribed and well tolerated with most side effects now considered a nocebo effect. Occasionally, statins can be associated with immune mediated necrotizing myositis that is both difficult to diagnose and treat. Aggressive immunosuppressive therapy is the best recognized method of treatment of this complication.
