Resumo: We report a 9-year follow-up of a girl with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and probable Sjögren's syndrome. At the age of 7 years, the patient developed a chilblain-like eruption with features of SLE, including leucopenia, oral ulcers, positive rheumatoid and antinuclear antibodies and positive anti-dsDNA, anti-Ro/SSA and anti-La/SSB antibodies. At the age of 13 years she developed Guillain-Barré syndrome, which completely resolved with aggressive treatment, including high-dose corticosteroids and the use of plasma exchange followed by intravenous gammaglobulin.
