Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s defense (immune) system attacks healthy cells. Lupus results in a chronic inflammatory reaction in various organs, especially the kidneys, joints, skin, and circulatory system.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus or SLE) is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s defense (immune) system mistakenly attacks healthy cells. Antibodies are produced, which then attack the body’s own cells, and are thus called autoantibodies. The result is a prolonged inflammatory reaction in various organs. The cause of SLE is currently not known.
Lupus predominantly affects women in childbearing age. People with lupus suffer from common complaints such as fever, weakness, and weight loss. It can also result in muscular and joint pain in several joints, as well as changes to the skin. A “butterfly rash” on the cheeks as well as oversensitivity to light of the skin are specific symptoms. Additionally, the heart, heart sac, lungs, kidneys, and even (though rarely) the brain can be affected.
Successful treatment includes medication that suppresses the immune system (cortisone and other immunosuppressants). Proper treatment can lead to a good prognosis. If the disease affects the kidneys, it may lead to kidney failure and if it affects the heart or brain it may have serious results.
