We report the case of a 25-year-old woman who presented with paralytic ileus, interstitial cystitis and bilateral hydronephrosis with systemic lupus erythematosus being the probable underlying aetiology. This uncommon association-the first case described in our locality-may represent a specific subgroup found in lupus patients.
Key words: Paralytic ileus; Interstitial cystitis; Systemic lupus erythematosus
