Gonococcemia mimicking a lupus flare in a young woman.
Lupus. 2014; 23(1):81-3.L

Abstract

Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted infection, which can present as the 'arthritis-dermatitis syndrome'. Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus often develop disseminated neisserial infections, because of inherited and acquired complement deficiencies. Neisserial infection, and particularly gonococcemia, can mimic a lupus flare. We report one case of gonococcemia presenting as acral papulo-vesiculous lesions of the digits in a young woman with lupus.
