Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary hemorrhage is a rare and life-threatening complication of systemic lupus erythematosus. In this report, we described a 17-year-old female with pulmonary hemorrhage as an initial manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus, along with lupus nephritis and central nervous system lupus. High doses of corticosteroids and pulse cyclophosphamide therapy resulted in rapid improvement of respiratory function in our patient.
