Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a connective tissue disorder involving multiple systems of the body, skin being one of the earliest systems to get involved. We report the case of a 29-year-old male patient, with acute vesicular malar rash and a host of positive antibodies, viz., ANA, anti-ds DNA, anti-Smith, APAbs, anti-U1RNP, and anti-histone. He also had low complement levels. Occurrence of SLE is rare in men. Presence of a variety of antibodies without the correlating systemic involvement is rarer still, making this a case worth reporting.
