Five cases of intestinal pseudo-obstruction (IPO) as the initial presentation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) were analyzed retrospectively. Among these 5 cases, two of them had concurrent interstitial cystitis, IPO relieved to methylpred nisolone and cyclophosphamide therapy in all patients. IPO as the initial presentation of SLE was an uncommon disease and had rarely been reported. The initiation of corticosteroids and/or immunosuppressive treatment was necessary for rising curative effect. A high level of awareness of this complication was needed to avoid unnecessary surgical intervention.
