AbstractRhupus is a rare syndrome characterized by overlap of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Previous reports mentioned that rhupus patients have prominent RA associated clinical manifestations and only mild organic damage related to SLE. Progressive or life-threatening manifestations are rare in rhupus patients. Our patient diagnosed as rhupus was a young women, presented with multi-organ involvement of systemic vasculitis. Rheumatologists should be aware of possibility that rhupus may be accompanied by progressive or life-threatening conditions such as vasculitis.
