Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Our patient and those of Agnello et al. had identical clinical symptoms such as erythema multiforme, arthralgias and angioneurotic edema and both differed from systemic lupus erthematosus in several important points, i.e., in spite of marked hypocomplementemia the nephropathy is not prominent and it needs high-dose steroids to eliminate the clinical and serological abnormalities. In addition to the features reported by Agnello et al. we found increased viral antibody titers in our patient's sera.
