Erlyne Tan, Diah Pradnya Paramita, Made Wirama Diyana

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that often involves the kidneys, that is lupus nephritis. This occurs in almost 50% of SLE patients. Patients with lupus nephritis present with immune complex-induced interstitial nephritis. It was common causes of oliguric acute renal failure that leads to decreased renal excretion including potassium. We present a case of persistent hyperkalaemia related to lupus nephritis, in patient with new onset SLE admitted in Wangaya Regional Hospital. In this case, we found an interesting case where we were correcting a patient with lupus nephritis and persistent hyperkalaemia. As we know, hyperkalaemia is a life-threatening condition causing cardiac arrhythmia and muscle paralysis.
