Subsets in systemic lupus erythematosus.


In recent years, evidence from several laboratories has indicated that various subsets of systemic lupus erythematosus exist. Some of these subsets have distinctive mucocutaneous features but more importantly they have different prevalence of renal disease--thus different prognosis. These subsets are defined by the specificity of the serum antibodies the SLE patient possesses.
