Background. Juvenile dermatomyositis associated interstitial lung disease, rarely seen in pediatric age groups, has adverse effects on survival. Anti-melanoma differentiation associated gene 5, one of the identified autoantibodies in juvenile dermatomyositis, preferentially affects the lung tissue and may cause rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease. It is a major cause of mortality in juvenile dermatomyositis. In this case report, we present a pediatric patient diagnosed with juvenile dermatomyositis without anti-melanoma differentiation associated gene 5 antibody positivity.
