Species-specific name: Inflammatory myopathy of masticatory muscles, focal inflammatory myopathy, canine masticatory muscle myositis

Species-specific symbol: MMM, CMMM

Species-specific description: Canine masticatory muscle myositis (CMMM) is an immunologically mediated canine myopathy, which affects only muscles of the masticatory muscle group (Vilafranca et al. 1995; Wu et al. 2007). The pathogenesis of MMM is not fully understood.
