Summary We report the clinical, histopathological and immunological features of follicular erythema and petechiae in a 30-year-old Japanese woman with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Histology showed this eruption to constitute a cutaneous manifestation of SLE. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of follicular erythema and petechiae in association with SLE. Accordingly, we propose that this rare eruption be termed ‘follicular lupus erythematosus’.
