Pneumothoraces and pneumohemathoraces have been described in adults with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Although a spectrum of pulmonary involvement has been associated with SLE in childhood and adolescence, recurrent pneumothoraces have not been reported. We describe a case of a 13-year-old adolescent with fulminant SLE and a recurrent left pneumothorax.
