Abstract

Gastrointestinal symptoms are very common in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Lupus "enteritis" is very responsive to treatment but can have devastating consequences if not detected. Most descriptions of enteritis involve the small and large bowel. This is the first report of lupus "enteritis" involving the entire gastrointestinal tract from the esophagus and stomach to the rectum. Lupus "enteritis" is another cause of upper gastrointestinal involvement in SLE (involving even the esophagus and stomach) in addition to involvement of the lower intestinal tract.
