Libman-Sacks endocarditis caused progressive life-threatening mitral regurgitation necessitating mitral valve replacement in an 18 year old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Although Libman-Sacks endocarditis is frequently seen at autopsy in patients with SLE, hemodynamically significant valvular disease due to that lesion is quite rare. We found no previous reports describing mitral regurgitation in a patient with SLE which has necessitated surgical intervention.
