Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disorder with heterogeneous presentation. We discuss the perioperative management of a female having SLE with left ventricular thrombus who was scheduled for bilateral femoral head core decompression. Warfarin was stopped preoperatively in order to bring down international normalized ratio <1.5 and restarted postoperatively on next day.
