In patients of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with vasculitis, along with medical management, stellate ganglion block (SGB) is also recommended frequently to improve the vascularity of the upper limb and in some instances prevent the gangrene of fingers. In this article, we described the management of a SLE patient presented with progressive gangrene of the finger. Ultrasound-guided SGB was successfully given in this patient to relieve pain and improve vascularity, which also helped in healing of ischemic ulcer on digits.
