Clin Rheumatol. 1989 Sep;8(3):402-7. doi: 10.1007/BF02030356.


The coexistence of systemic lupus erythematosus and myelofibrosis is a rare occurrence. A review of the literature available to us revealed only five other patients with this combination. We have recently encountered a patient in whom these two diseases existed concomitantly, and in this report we shall describe the clinical course of our patient and discuss it in comparison with the patients described previously.
