Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Lupus vasculopathy (LV) is one of the complications of lupus nephritis. No definite therapy has been recommended for the management of LV, and patient outcomes are variable. We present the case of a 16-year-old girl who recovered from stage V chronic kidney disease due to lupus nephritis with vasculopathy with active treatment including pulse methylprednisolone, cyclophosphamide, rituximab and plasma exchange.
