Abstract : Context: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a common disease with myriad presentation. Aplastic anaemia is occasionally associated with this disorder; however, a simultaneous diagnosis of aplastic anaemia with SLE on presentation is unusual. Case Report: We present here, probably the first reported case of simultaneous presentation of aplastic anaemia with florid features of SLE.
