LI, Yu-feng  and  WEI, Min-jiang. Acute pancreatitis in childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus: Case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2019, vol.117, n.3, pp.e279-e283. ISSN 0325-0075.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem disease with protean manifestations. Lupus pancreatitis is the second most common disease associated with SLE-related acute abdomen. Although acute pancreatitis is rare it is clinically important because this condition can be life threatening if not treated promptly. Here, we report a case of a 10-year-old girl who developed SLE-associated pancreatitis after steroids therapy that was subsequently complicated by fungal septicaemia. Her clinical symptoms and signs markedly improved after administration of glucocorticoids and cyclophosphamide.

Keywords : Systemic lupus erythematosus; Acute pancreatitis; Fungal infection; Septicaemia; Child.
