Circulating prolactin levels in a woman with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) were measured over a period of 4 years, and her hyperprolactinemia remained associated with disease activity throughout. Circulating prolactin could thus be a better practical marker than standard parameters such as anti-double-stranded DNA antibodies and serum complement in some patients with SLE.
