A 15-year-old girl with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in remission for 3 years showed abdominal pain and bloody stools. No evidence for exacerbation of SLE was obtained. An air-contrast barium enema examination and colonoscopy revealed findings typical of Crohn disease. Despite the rarity of the combination, patients with SLE showing gastrointestinal manifestations might need evaluation for Crohn disease.
