Systemic Lupus Erythematosus with Crohn’s Disease: A Rare Combination and Unusual Presentation
KeywordsSystemic lupus erythematosus, infliximab, Crohn's disease
The coexistence of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and Crohn’s disease (CD) is very rare. The usual sequence of occurrence is CD followed by SLE, where CD treatment with anti-tumour necrosis factor (anti-TNF) induces the latter. Here, we present a case of this rare combination but with sequence reversal. The patient was unresponsive to steroids and we achieved remission with infliximab.
