Abstract
Angioedma is a group of disorders with multifactorial etiology but a similar clinical

expresion, is characterized by swelling of subcutaneous or submucosal tissue. Systemic

lupus erythematosus(SLE) Is a chronic multi-systemtic disease characterized by

inflammation and tissue damage resulting from deposition of auto-antibodies and immune

complex. We experienced a case of angioedema which was the first manifestation of

SLE in 24-year old female patient. She had suffered from severe facial edema and

multiple lymphadenopathy for six months and she also had pleural effusion, positive

anti-nuclear and anti-DNA antibody test. Marked de crease of C3 and C4 levels was

noted with normal antigenic level, and activity of Cl esterase inhibitor. The angioedema

was not improved with anti-hitamine agents and instead disappeared with use of

corticosteroid and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Complement levels nor-malized

after corticosteroid treatment. We report a case of SLE which initial manifestation was

angioedema.
