Core Tip In patients with lupus who develop thrombotic microangiopathy, early initiation of plasma exchange appears to carry a survival benefit - even in those patients whose ADAMTS13 activity levels are not severely deficient. This improved survival has become apparent in the last ten years during which time seven cases of thrombotic microangiopathy complicating lupus and treated with plasma exchange have been reported. The present article describes the eighth such case, reviews the previously described cases and outcomes of microangiopathy in lupus, and hypothesizes as to why plasma exchange appears to be beneficial in this subset of patients with atypical haemolytic uremic syndrome.
