Abstract

We describe a female patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) also diagnosed with Fabry’s disease and anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome (APS). SLE and Fabry’s disease are both systemic diseases with variable clinical presentations. Recent studies have shown a relatively high incidence of late onset Fabry’s disease in female heterozygous individuals, suggesting that this condition could be under-diagnosed. We discuss a possible association between SLE and Fabry’s disease and consider the role of lipid abnormalities in the pathogenesis of SLE.
