Periorbital edema as initial manifestation of chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus

Samar Erras, Laila Benjilali, Lamiaa Essaadouni

Abstract


Periorbital edema occurs frequently in dermatomyositis, but it has rarely been noted in systemic systemic lupus erythematosus. We describe a patient who developed bilateral periorbital edema and erythema as the sole manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus.
