Abstract

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is one of the most severe manifestations in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Ischemic colitis, mainly caused by intestinal vasculitis, is also one of the most serious, but uncommon, complications in SLE patients. "SLE vasculitis" simultaneously involving cardiac and gastrointestinal vessels has yet to be reported. This is the first report of SLE accompanying AMI, ischemic colitis and perforation of the digestive tract possibly due to SLE vasculitis, which was dramatically improved by treatment with high-dose glucocorticoid.
