Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a systemic disease with multiorgan involvement including eyes. We report a 37-year-old female, a known SLE case for 4 years, who came to our clinic to screen for hydroxychloroquine toxicity. Fundus showed changes of ischemic retinopathy, confirmed on optical coherence tomography angiography and fundus fluorescein angiography. Our case illustrates the importance of multimodal imaging and its correlation with systemic disease activity in SLE patients.
