|Abstract:||We describe a haemodialysis patient who presented with an exacerbation of previously undiagnosed chronic focal myositis during a hospital admission for missed dialysis and chronic foot osteomyelitis. The association of focal myositis with haemodialysis has been reported once previously, but we report the third case in our experience and argue that it is probably more common than previously appreciated. We consider a focused differential diagnosis for a diabetic dialysis patient with leg pain and discuss important features of this rare condition.|
