Abstract

The twenty percent of rheumatoid arthritis patients experience rheumatoid nodules, particularly over their extensor surfaces. There have been some reports of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid nodules. A 44 year-old female patient has had a skin lesion on the buttock for one year, which was a slightly depressed brownish indurated patch. She was diagnosed as systemic lupus erythematosus and treated for ten years. Histopathologic findings of the skin lesion showed appearances consistent with rheumatoid nodules. We experienced a case of rheumatoid nodule in a systemic lupus erythematosus patient and first report in Korea.
