Abstract

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic, autoimmune disorder involving multiple organ systems with variability in its clinical features and complexity of disease course. Ocular manifestations occur in one-third of SLE patients. Vision-threatening retinal vasculitis may be the initial eye presentation in such cases.

We herein present a case of a teenage girl who exhibits signs and symptoms of retinal vasculitis after the initial diagnosis of SLE.
