Abstract:

Muscle related side effects of statins might be more frequent than once considered. Without affecting CK, they appear in various forms. Here, for the first time, we describe a new appearance we call "Statin-induced myositis migrans" in a 74-year-old female. Symptoms appeared more during the day and were not related to exercise. They were seen after simvastatin, pravastatin and--most intensively--after atorvastatin, but not on lovastatin, which the patient took for about 7 years without any problem. The clinical consequence (to withdraw the drug or not) of these milder statin side effects are discussed.
