Abstract: We report the exceptional case of 11-year-old identical male twins who both developed discoid lupus erythematosus lesions. Although systemic lupus erythematosus has often been reported in identical twins, discoid lupus erythematosus has only ocassionaly been described, with only one other case in twin children, as far as we are aware.
