"Take Home Points
  1. In patients presenting with prolonged muscle pain, low-grade fevers, myalgias, and generalized fatigue, PM should be considered.
  2. Immunosuppression is a significant risk factor.
  3. PM most frequently results from aureus infection.
  4. Ultrasound may rapidly identify PM, but MRI is the diagnostic test of choice to determine the extent of the disease.
  5. IV antibiotics and I&D are the mainstays of treatment."
