A case of SLE with non-erosive joint deformity -Jaccoud's type arthropathy-
A case of SLE in a twenty-eight year old woman, who had polyarthritis with non-erosive joint deformity, was reported. Differential diagnosis in this case included (1) rheumatoid arthritis (2) postrheumatic fever arthritis (Jaccoud's arthritis) and (3) the overlap syndrome between SLE and rheumatoid arthritis. Laboratory findings on this patient and review on literature, however, strongly suggested that this lady had been suffering from Jaccoud's type arthropathy of SLE. Corticosteroid therapy was initiated and the clinical course of the patient thereafter has been more than favorable.
