Inflammation caused by lupus disease can affect many different systems of the body, including the lungs, brain, kidneys, skin, joints, heart, and blood cells.
The signs and symptoms of lupus disease often show similarities with other disorders, and therefore the disease can be difficult to diagnose. The most obvious symptom of lupus disease is a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly opening on both cheeks and is seen in many cases of lupus.
Although its genetic transitivity is not yet fully understood, the available information supports that there may be a familial predisposition to lupus disease.
Lupus exacerbations in patients can be triggered by infection, the use of certain medications, and even sunlight. There is no definitive treatment method for lupus disease yet, and the treatment methods used focus on controlling the symptoms of the disease.
