Core Tip Lupus enteritis is a rare manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It is a difficult diagnosis, especially in the absence of other symptoms related to active SLE. We present the case of a 25-year-old female with lupus enteritis as the sole initial manifestation of active SLE. The diagnosis can be made with history, physical exam, laboratory testing, and imaging. Endoscopy is not required nor recommended to make the diagnosis. Treatment depends on the severity. In this patient with moderate severity lupus enteritis, high dose steroids were an efficient initial treatment. Hydroxychloroquine was used to maintain remission.
