Splenic infarction is a rare disease and usually detected as a complication of SBE, atrial fibrillation, hemoglobinopathy, or myeloproliperative disorders. Although thrombotic event, such as deep vein, cerebral or renal thrombosis, is a frequent complication of SLE, there have been only a couple of cases documenting splenic infarction complicated in SLE. This is, to our knowledge, the first case report describing isolated splenic infarction in pediatric SLE. The splenic infarction was diagnosed on abdominal CT, 99mTc-RBC splenic scan, and abdominal USG, and resolved with anticoagulant therapy. And we discussed about the possibility of antiphospholipid syndrome as a cause of the infarction in this case.
Key Words: Splenic infarction, Pediatric SLE, Antiphospholipid syndrome
