Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoinmune multisystemic disease. Intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIg) have been previously used for the treatment of primary immunodeficiency diseases. In addition IVIg is used for a few autoimmune diseases, such as immune thrombocytopenic purpura. IVIg is an immunomodulatory agent capable of modulating autoinmunity and also provide defense against infection, IVIg has been used successfully in SLE. We review the role of IVIg in SLE as a therapeutic option.

Key words: Systemic lupus erythematosus, treatment, childhood, Intravenous immunoglobulins.
