Abstract

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by the Production of auto antibodies directed against a variety of nuclear and cytoplasmic antigens. Auto antibodies to ribosomal Proteins are found in 15–30% of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. Ribosomal P antibody is shown to predict SLE 1.7 years before clinical onset of SLE. This is a case of 28 year old female patient with a malar rash and nonspecific neurologic symptoms .The antibody profile showed that ANA ,anti- Ds dna and anti- Sm antibodies were negative but anti ribosomal P0 antibody was strongly positive(+++) at presentation. A strong clinical suspicion and careful follow-up helped in making a diagnosis of SLE over a period of nine months.
