Report Description

Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease which causes the

immune system to mistakenly attack health body tissue. In SLE, body immune system can

affect any part of the body, such as joints, organs, eyes, skin, etc. Often SLE can result in

symptoms such as malar rash, discoid lesions, sub-acute cutaneous lesions,

photosensitivity, oral ulcers, arthritis, serositis, nephropathy, neurologic involvement,

thrombocytopenia, haemolytic anemia, fever, Raynaud’s phenomenon, livedo reticularis,

thrombosis, and myositis. It is also known as a disease of flare-ups and remissions and

can range from mild to life threatening severity. It is also called as drug-induced lupus

erythematosus due to common observation against drugs such as isoniazid, hydralazine

and procainamide. Currently, there is no complete treatment for SLE. While only two

biologic agents have been approved by FDA to treat SLE, synthetic drugs are still the

mainstay of therapy in SLE. Based on available evidence, azathioprine and

mycophenolate mofetil are the drugs of first choice. Hydroxychloroquine should be

considered an anchor drug in SLE because of the multiple beneficial effects of this agent.
