Secondary amyloidosis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus has rarely been reported. A 57-year-old female had been diagnosed as having possible systemic lupus erythematosus, although her clinical course was not typical. About one year after the diagnosis, treatment was begun with prednisolone because of progressive renal dysfunction, thrombocytopenia and low serum levels of complements. Recurrent diarrhea and gastrointestinal bleeding soon developed, then amyloidosis was revealed in the stomach and duodenum. Postmortem examination confirmed systemic amyloidosis. We discuss the significance of this rare association of systemic lupus erythematosus and secondary amyloidosis. (Internal Medicine 32: 391-394, 1993).
