Abstract

Overlap between rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is rare, but does occur. We have recently seen 3 patients with classic subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) skin lesions in association with active RA. In this report, we describe the clinical and serologic characteristics of these patients who share the clinical features of SCLE, SLE, and RA.
