A 69-year-old female patient was admitted to our clinic with photosensitivity, symmetric erosive polyarthritis, and cutaneous vasculitis of lower extremities. Rhupus syndrome was diagnosed, and Chiari's network in the right atrium and interatrial septum patent foramen ovale was achieved on transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography. If it is thought that increased prevalence of antiphospholipid antibodies in patients with rhupus, this congenital remnant is important for the thrombosis risk, cardiac event, and stroke. The association of both diseases may lead to more serious events and cause worse prognosis. Here, our aim is to present a 69-year-old female patient with rhupus syndrome presenting with cutaneous vasculitis and Chiari's network in the right atrium.
