Abstract

Drug-induced lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune phenomenon where the drug exposure leads to the development of systemic lupus erythematous like clinical features. Drug-induced lupus erythematosus can be divided into systemic lupus erythematous, subacute cutaneous lupus erythematous, and chronic cutaneous lupus erythematous. Here, we report a case of a 29-year-old female presented with systemic lupus erythematous due to chronic use of proton pump inhibitors, which is considered to be very rare.
