The systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE) is a systemic inflammatory disease caused by autoimmune mechanism, involving blood cells, the kidney, the central nervous system, and etc. The heart is one of the frequently involved organs but it is rare as an initial manifestation. Therefore, early suspicion and accurate diagnosis followed by aggressive immunosuppressive therapy including corticosteroid is mandatory for heart-involved patients. We experienced a case of pericardial effusion as an initial manifestation of childhood SLE, which showed immediate response to corticosteroid.
Key words: Systemic lupus erythematosus | Pericardial effusion | Corticosteroid
