Libman-Sacks endocarditis is the most classic heart disorder associated with systemic lupus erythematosus SLE and is a serious cause of morbidity and mortality.

For some patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis PD lupic activity markers remain positive after having started treatment, with accompanying clinical symptoms, especially serositis or vasculitis. We present the case of a year-old female, affected by advanced type IV lupus nephropathy, undergoing a PD programme since February Since then, she has presented with positive markers. She was suffering flare on her skin and joints, and received sodium mycophenolate at a dosage of mg and prednisone at 5mg daily.

She is on the waiting list for a kidney transplant. The only PD complication that she experienced was an episode of peritonitis, in June of the same year. She was admitted because of dyspnoea and general progressive discomfort, which had lasted for 15 days.

In the physical examination, a diastolic murmur was found in the aortic area, which extended to the carotids, with a significant pericardial friction, but there were no signs of heart failure. The rest of physical examination was normal. The biochemical tests found: Antinuclear antibodies indirect immunofluorescence [IIF]: Three vegetations were found in the aortic valve, and the largest one measured 20mm.

A pericardial haemorrhage was also observed without signs of heart block or thrombi Figures 1 and All of the blood and serum cultures were negative.

Chest, abdominal and cranial computed tomography CT did not show any significant changes. Daily dialysis was indicated given the evidence of pericarditis and the uraemic evidence.

After eight days of treatment, a control echocardiogram was performed which showed that the pericardial leakage had reduced and that the severe AR was persistent, with an image of swaying vegetation. Lastly, blood cultures were negative.

Given the severity of AI, it was decided that the valve should be repaired surgically, and a mechanical prosthesis placed. The anatomopathological diagnosis of the valvular piece informed of an aortic endocarditis with no evidence of microorganisms Libman-Sacks endocarditis.
