Abstract

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is an autoimmune disorder manifested by episodes of progressive inflammation and destruction of both articular and nonarticular cartilage1. Although RP has been shown to have an increased association with other autoimmune disorders, this disease has been found to coexist with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)2.We present a patient with SLE, who developed left auricular inflammation, polychondritis and ocular inflammation associated with hoarseness.
