Abstract

A 20-year old female patient with systemic lupus erythematosus with butterfly-erythema, arthritis, high positive ANA and anti-ds-DNA titres has to have laparatomy because of an acute abdomen. Histological diagnosis is a necrotizing vasculitis of the appendix. In systemic lupus erythematosus an intestinal vasculitis can be found which might be as severe as in polyarteritis nodosa.
