Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease that attacks various body systems. Tuberculous pleurisy is one of the most common manifestations of extrapulmonary TB, Tuberculous pleurisyoccurs due to infection with Myobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) in the pleura. The relationship between SLE and TB is said to be closely related, where in SLE there is an increased susceptibility to TB infection as a result of immunosuppressive conditions or as a result of immunosuppressive therapy in SLE patients themselves. We report a patient newly diagnosed with SLE with TB pleurisy. According to some data obtained, the presence of impaired immune system function in SLE patients is associated with the development of clinical manifestations of TB.
