INTRODUCTION: Cardiopulmonary symptoms occur in up to 60% of patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Shrinking Lung Syndrome (SLS) is a rare complication of SLE where patients present with restrictive lung disease without imaging findings. We report a case of new onset SLS while receiving hydroxychloroquine, mycophenolate and prednisone treated successfully with belimumab.
