Abstract

An 11 month old boy presented with gangrene of the extremities. He was found to have positive nuclear antibodies and antibodies to double stranded DNA, and negative Ro and La antibodies. The infant was started on oral prednisolone, which was discontinued after six months. At one year of follow up he was asymptomatic, with negative nuclear antibodies and antibodies to double stranded DNA.
