A 21-year-old man with systemic lupus erythematosus presented with a prominent inflammatory dermatitis confined primarily to steroid-induced striae. To the best of our knowledge, this cutaneous manifestation of lupus erythematosus has not been previously reported. Koebner's phenomenon is suspected to be the underlying mechanism.
