Abstract We report a 50-year-old female patient who developed ulcerative colitis 31 after years being diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus. The overall clinical evaluation of her SLE activity differentiated ulcerative colitis from lupus colitis. Since the association of idiopathic systemic lupus erythematosus with ulcerative colitis has rarely been reported, the combination of these two diseases may be coincidental.
