PMID 21970665

Abstract

To describe a systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) relapse, which presented as frosted branch retinal angiitis. Clinical case report. A 16-year-old female patient had an SLE relapse that appeared as frosted branch angiitis while being treated with deflazacort and azathioprine. Complete resolution of the vasculitis was achieved with a 3-day course of pulsed intravenous methylprednisolone and oral prednisone 3 weeks later. Even with proper immunosuppressive treatment, SLE can relapse. This case presented as frosted branch retinal angiitis, which is a clinical picture that is rarely described in SLE.
