Abstract

We describe an 82-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus who developed pernicious anemia 3 years later. Although both diseases are autoimmune in origin, this association is rather rare, and only 3 other cases have been described. Pernicious anemia appeared after steroid treatment was withdrawn.
