Abstract

A patient with photosensitivity is described who presented with an overlap syndrome combining features of systemic lupus erythematosus with a mild polymyositis and scleroderma and with symptoms of the sicca syndrome. In addition, he was anti-SSA/Ro positive and had a constellation of antibodies directed to ENA including the anti-SL-Ki antibody. The condition was fatal and he died from heart failure and respiratory insufficiency.
