Abstract

We describe a 17-year-old male who presented with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and 2 years thereafter developed central nervous system lupus and nephritis. The association of TTP and systemic lupus erythematosus has been described, but the unusual sequence and chronological separation is very rare.
