Abstract (2. Language): 
Gastrointestinal system (GIS) manifestations are common in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. The gastrointestinal vasculopathy of SLE is a unique clinical entity and reviewed infrequently but it should be kept in mind to give the necessary treatment with corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive agents and to avoid non-essential surgical interventions. Here we report a 33-yearold SLE patient that presented with surgical acute abdomen symptoms, was followed-up in a Nephrology Department, and was well managed with high doses of corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide after the diagnosis of GIS vasculopathy.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Sistemik lupus eritematosus (SLE) hastalarında gastrointestinal sistem (GİS) semptomları sıktır. SLE’ ye bağlı GİS vaskülopatisi daha önce literatürde az bildirilmiş nadir bir klinik durumdur fakat kortikosteroidler ve diğer immünosüpresifl erle doğru tedavinin verilmesi ve gereksiz cerrahi uygulamalardan kaçınılması açısından akılda tutulması gerekir. Burada SLE tanısıyla Nefroloji Bölümünde takip edilen ve akut batın semptomlarıyla başvuran 33 yaşındaki hastanın GİS vaskülopati tanısı konulduktan sonra yüksek doz kortikosteroid ve siklofosfamidle tedavisi anlatılmaktadır.
