Systemic lupus erythematosus is a multi-system inflammatory disease. The clinical manifestations are diverse. Hepatic manifestation is a rarely seen complication of systemic lupus erythematosus. We report a case of complication of systemic lupus erythematosus presenting as cholestatic hepatitis in a 56-year-old Chinese woman. The cholestatic hepatitis progressed as part of the lupus activity and responded to steroid therapy
