Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus)
There are four types of lupus:
- Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE): This is the most common form and is generally what people are referring to when they refer to lupus.
- Cutaneous Lupus: This is a specific type of lupus that is limited to the skin.
- Drug-Induced Lupus: Certain drugs can cause lupus-like symptoms. It is temporary and usually subsides.
- Neonatal Lupus: Rarely, some babies may develop lupus if their mother has certain antibodies.
Treatment for lupus varies depending on a patient’s symptoms and the severity of their case. But the goal of treatment is always remission. Talk to your AOCC provider about your options for lupus treatment.
