Abstract

One of the most commonly prescribed lipid lowering medications are statins. In most cases, statins are well tolerated. In rare instances, statin induced necrotizing autoimmune myositis (SINAM) can occur. The following case presents a patient with a 15 year history of simvastatin use who developed SINAM following a motor vehicle accident.
