Title: Fulminant course of valvular insufficiency on a patient with systemic lupus erythemathosous, Mekelle, Ethiopia


Biography: Abel Gidey Kebedom


Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause that can affect the multiple organs of the body. Cardiac involvement among children with SLE ranges in various studies from 12 to 54 percent. The manifestations are varied in nature and severity. Valvular lesion is the most encountered form of heart disease in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The mitral valve being the commonest site. We report a case of 16 years old male adolescent who was referred from district hospital in Tigray region. He was newly diagnosed Systemic lupus erythematosus with rapid progression of valvular insufficiency and congestive heart failure. This is one of the rare case reports with diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.
