Abstract

An adolescent girl, a known case of spina bifida with systemic lupus, presented with bluish discolouration of three toes of the right foot. She had thrombosis of bilateral popliteal arteries. She underwent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of both legs and Chopart amputation of the right foot. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) occurring in a patient with spina bifida has not been previously reported. Weakness, sensory loss, lack of normal ambulation, endarteritis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome are common contributory factors for peripheral gangrene in patients with spina bifida with systemic lupus erythematosus.
