Abstract EN

Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is an inflammatory condition of unknown etiology, commonly occurring in the elderly and is associated with a good prognosis.

Patients usually present with pain in the neck, shoulders, and hips.

The onset is often abrupt and is associated with depression and flu-like symptoms.

Lung involvement in patients with PMR is unusual.

Here we report a rare case of a 66-year-old man who presented with clinical features of PMR and respiratory symptoms, namely exertional dyspnea and dry cough.
