Abstract

Genetic factors may be important in the development of autoimmune disease. We describe the development of fulminant systemic lupus erythematosus in a patient 5 years after recovery from polymyositis. The successive unfolding of different autoimmune diseases in the same individual is suggestive of sequential gene activation.
