Abstract: A 16 year old girl with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) developed the rare complication of central retinal vein occlusion. Although classically a disease of older patients, it has been recognised in association with SLE but only in the presence of the lupus anticoagulant or antiphospholipid antibodies. The thrombosis occurred when free protein S concentrations were transiently reduced and there was no family history or other known causes of reduced protein S concentrations. No other prothrombotic risk factors were present.
