South Med J. 1995 Jun;88(6):673-6. doi: 10.1097/00007611-199506000-00018.


Systemic lupus erythematosus presents various clinical manifestations. The coexistence of systemic lupus erythematosus and celiac sprue has been rarely reported. We present a patient who had systemic lupus erythematosus with malabsorption demonstrating characteristic clinical and pathologic findings of celiac sprue (gluten enteropathy).
