ABSTRACT
We describe a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who exhibited severe cutaneous involvement characterized by the simultaneous presence of acute, subacute and discoid lesions in association with anti-Sl antibodies. After she failed to respond to chloroquine, medium to low dose steroids, steroid pulses, retinoids and cyclophosphamide, the patient was treated with Dapsone and a dramatic improvement in the cutaneous lesions was seen after only one month.
