Abstract

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease with a wide clinical expression, and musculoskeletal manifestations are the most frequent manifestations of the disease. Digestive manifestations, however, are less prevalent, appearing in only 2%-30% of the patients. Among these cases, the association of SLE with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is considered to be rare, with only a few cases documented in the medical literature. We present the only reported case to date of a patient diagnosed with SLE suffering from a flare with a simultaneous hepatic and muscular inflammatory involvement, both evidenced by biopsy.
