Polymyositis and dermatomyositis are disorders of the body's connective tissues, which include tendons, ligaments and the dense sheets of collagen-based tissue that cover the ends of the muscles.

These diseases cause swelling and tenderness in the muscles (polymyositis) and sometimes the skin (dermatomyositis).
