SOLER V, Tamara; ARBO OM, Guillermo  and  CACERES C, Neva. Pulmonary thromboembolism associated to antiphospholipid syndrome and systemic lupus erythematosus.. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2000, vol.128, n.8, pp.899-903. ISSN 0034-9887.

The association between systemic lupus erythematosus and antiphospholipid syndrome can cause several complications. We report a 45 years old woman, treated with steroids for a systemic lupus erythematosus. She presented with a clinical picture of a lupus pneumonitis and, subsequently, with the picture of a pulmonary thromboembolism. The diagnosis was confirmed by helicoidal computed axial tomography. The patient was treated with anticoagulants, with a favourable outcome. (Rev Méd Chile 2000; 128: 899-903)

Keywords : Antiphospholipid syndrome; Lupus erythematosus systemic; Pulmonary embolism.
