Abstract

We present the case of a 57-year old female patient diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) along with glomerulonephritis and chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIPO). Dilatation of bile and pancreatic ducts not associated with malignant or litiasic obstruction is reported. The combination of bile duct associated with CIPO in a patient with lupus has not been previously reported in the literature and it probably suggests a smooth muscle dysmotility. © 2005 Edward Arnold (Publishers) Ltd.
