AbstractBenign acute childhood myositis (BACM) is rare. It has been regarded as a dramatic complication of viral respiratory tract infection, particularly influenza B, whose clinical resolution is spontaneous, favourable and equally dramatic. This case report describes a clinical presentation which is consistent with the literature and offers an approach to ruling out sinister differential diagnoses. Awareness of this condition may help front-line clinicians to consider a selective approach to pursuing investigations.
