Abstract

A young girl born to a mother with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) had congenital heart block and developed symptoms of a connective tissue disorder at the age of 13 y. When first seen at the age of 15 y she was found to have an unclassified connective tissue disorder and to be seropositive for anti Ro/SSA and U1 RNP. This constellation of clinical/serological features has not been described among the reported handful of patients with congenital heart block and subsequent development of a connective tissue disorder.
