Abstract: A 36-year-old female patient who was diagnosed with chronic myocarditis as an initial manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) was admitted to our hospital. At her third occurrence of heart failure, we performed an endomyocardial biopsy and proved chronic myocarditis with SLE. Subsequently, she was treated with prednisolone and the immunosuppressive agent mizoribine (MZR), and her cardiac function improved. We describe for the first time treatment with MZR for chronic cardiac involvement of SLE.
