Neonatal lupus erythematosus: discordant disease expression of U1RNP-positive antibodies in fraternal twins--is this a subset of neonatal lupus erythematosus or a new distinct syndrome?

Abstract

Neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE) is an uncommon disease that is manifested by cutaneous lesions, cardiac conduction defects, or both, that appear in utero or shortly after birth.
