Skin involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) occurs in varied forms. Lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) is not known to occur with SLE. In our patient presented below, LET occurred in a patient with SLE. Some of the lesions progressed to scarring discoid lesions, while others responded very well to hydoxychloroquine treatment. We, as rheumatologists, are not very aware of this entity, which is so amenable to prevention and treatment if recognized correctly.
