    Abstract

    A 31-year-old Chinese lady presented with severe SLE with nephrotic syndrome, anemia, leucopenia and thrombocytopenia, skin lesions, and joint inflammation after failing previous standard therapy. After treatment with three infusions of rituximab she showed immediate improvements regarding clinical and laboratory parameters. She received no cytotoxic drugs and remained well for at least 7 months, despite stopping prednisolone.
