Abstract

We report a 56 year-old female patient with autoimmune chronic active hepatitis, who also satisfied the criteria for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) revised by the 1982 American Rheumatism Association (ARA). SLE with severe liver involvement is uncommon; chronic active hepatitis with manifestations of SLE is also unusual. Nonetheless, it may be difficult to make a distinction between the two disorders.
