This  paper  is  a  case  report  about  a  17  years  old  boy,  who  came  us  to  Vali-asr  hospital  clinic  with  loss  of  appetite  and  skin  lesions,  and  arthritis. He  felt  well  to  one  month  ago, until he was taken  an  operation for  appendicitis.Several  days  after  that , skin  lesions  included  erythematous,  purpura  lesions  began  to  appear. Arthritis  in  MCP,PIP, anckles, wrists and  knees  was  appeared. Biopsy  of  skin  lesions  cleared, vasculitis, edema, and  PMN infiltrations. Biopsy findings  strongly  suggested  lupus. The  exams  were  normal  except  for  reduction  of  C3, C4, CH50, ADNA  was  positive. Photosensitivity  arthritis, skin  lesions  and  biopsy  findings  and  serologic  findings  were  in  favor  of  sub acute  cutaneous  lupus. This  form  of  lupus  is  seen  in  10%  of  lupus  case. Usually  CNS  and  renal  lesions  are  rare. ANA also  is  negative  up  to  50%. History  of  this  form  of  lupus  is  better  than  systemic  lupus, but  occasionally  this  form  is  converted  to  systemic  lupus. This  boy  was  taken  medication  with  prednisolone  and  coloroquine. Finally, all of  symptoms  respond  to  treatment.
