Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs. The underlying cause of autoimmune diseases is not fully known.Symptoms can vary and can change over time. Common symptoms include:
a rash on the cheeks and nose, which is called a “butterfly rash”
fingers turning white or blue and tingling when cold, which is known as Raynaud’s phenomenon
HOW IS SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS DIAGNOSED?
A General Physician diagnoses Systemic Lupus Erythematosus by conducting a physical examination, blood test, urinalysis and chest X-rays. No one single test is diagnostic of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
HOW IS SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS TREATED?
No cure for SLE exists. The goal of treatment is to ease symptoms. Treatment can vary depending on how severe your symptoms are and which parts of your body SLE affects. The treatments may include:
anti-inflammatory medications for joint pain and stiffness

corticosteroids to minimize the immune response
antimalarial drugs for skin and joint problems
