Recommended Lupus Books Shop for Lupus Introduction Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic, usually life-long, potentially fatal autoimmune disease characterized by unpredictable exacerbations and remissions with protean clinical manifestations. In SLE there is a predilection for clinical involvement of the joints, skin, kidney, brain, serosa, lug, heart and gastrointestinal tract. Women and minorities are disproportionately affected and SLE is most common in women of child-bearing age although it has ben reported in both extremes of life (e.g. diagnosed in infants and in the tenth decade of life). The prevalence in the Unites States had been estimated as approximately 500,000 but a recent telephone survey commissioned by the Lupus Foundation of America suggested a prevalence of as many as 2,000,000. A recent study identified a prevalence of 500 per 100,000 (1:200) in women residing in the area surrounding Birmingham, Alabama. The prognosis for patients with SLE has greatly improved over the last few decades with at least 80-90% of all patients surviving ten years. Thereafter life expectancy approximates that of age matched controls. This improvement reflects the general advancements in health care (i.e. dialysis, antibiotics, antihypertensives, newer immunosuppressives with more favorable efficacy to toxicity ration) but also the specialized care available for patients with SLE.

Discusses what it is, the causes and symptoms of different types, how it is treated, and advice on living with it.

Chantelle was having a rough morning. Her hands were so stiff that she could barely dial the combination on her locker. Then she couldn't move her fingers well enough to play her clarinet. It seemed that ever since marching band practice had started in the early summer, her hands and feet felt sore in the mornings. She was also tired all the time, and no matter how much she rested, she still felt sleepy and achy all over. Chantelle told her doctor about her achy hands and feet and how she felt tired all the time. The doctor sent her for blood tests. A few days later, the doctor called and told Chantelle's dad that she might have lupus. What Is Lupus?
Lupus (pronounced: loo -pus) is a disease that involves the immune system and affects about 1.5 million Americans; nearly 90% of those diagnosed with the disease are female. Normally, a person's immune system works by producing immunity cells and antibodies , special substances that fight germs and infections. But when a person has lupus, his or her immune system goes into overdrive and can't tell the difference between some of the body's normal, healthy cells and germs that can cause infection. So the immune system responds by making autoantibodies that attack the body's normal cells.

DEFINICIÓN El Lupus Eritematoso Sistémico , también llamado por sus iniciales LES, o simplemente Lupus CAUSAS El LES es una alteración del sistema inmunitario, que es el sistema que, normalmente, protege al organismo frente a infecciones y cánceres. En el LES, dicho sistema inmunitario es hiperactivo, y se producen importantes cantidades de anticuerpos anormales que reaccionan con los tejidos del propio paciente. La causa exacta del Lupus es desconocida, pero juegan un papel importante la herencia, factores del entorno y ciertos cambios hormonales.
Así, la prevalencia del LES varía en los distintos grupos de población, oscilando entre 300 y 400 pacientes por cada 100.000 habitantes. Es más frecuente en ciertos grupos étnicos, especialmente los negros, y más del 90% de los pacientes son mujeres.

Antibodies Alternative names Return to top Disseminated lupus erythematosus; SLE; Lupus; Lupus erythematosus Definition Return to top Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic, inflammatory autoimmune disorder . It may affect many organ systems including the skin, joints, and internal organs. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Normally, the immune system controls the body's defenses against infection. In SLE and other autoimmune diseases, these defenses are turned against the body and rogue immune cells attack tissues. Antibodies may be produced that can react against the body's blood cells, organs, and tissues. These lead immune cells to attack the affected systems, producing a chronic (long-term) disease. The mechanism or cause of autoimmune diseases is not fully known, but many researchers suspect it occurs following infection with an organism that looks similar to particular proteins in the body, which are later mistaken for the organism and wrongly targeted for attack.

I can't believe we have done that many issues. I hope you are continuing to enjoy it as much as I am. I would like to welcome some new readers to the Loop. In our clinic we see teens with other diseases such as dermatomyositis and vasculitis. These diseases have some features or treatments that are similar to lupus. I thought that the information we share would be helpful to this group of teens. So welcome new readers and send in your stories! Jenny Tekano
