Abstract

Introduction Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) is uncommon in the first decade of life. It has been described as part of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) or in isolation in adults. We report a case of severe haemolytic anaemia with discoid lesions that gave a clue to diagnosis and management.
