Objective The objective of this paper is to investigate survival and causes of death in a Danish lupus population. Methods Two hundred and fifteen SLE patients (94% Caucasians) were followed prospectively for up to 16 years. Thirty-eight patients died. Survival rate and causes of death were analysed. Results Overall standardized mortality ratio (SMR) was 2.2. Peak values were recorded for patients aged 20–29 (SMR 21.1). Cumulated survival rates at one, five, 10 and 15 years were 98.6%, 93.6…

Mortality and years of potential life loss in systemic lupus erythematosus: a population-based cohort study
TLDR
This study demonstrates that YPLL gives additional and useful information for the prognosis of SLE, supplementing traditional methods of measuring mortality.
Survival analysis of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus in a tertiary hospital in southern Brazil
TLDR
Cardiovascular disease, infection, and SLE activity associated with infection were the main known causes of deaths in the authors' SLE patients and secondary antiphospolipid syndrome, highest score in SLICC damage index, advanced age at diagnosis, and high dose of corticosteroids were risk factors for mortality.
Mortality and causes of death among incident cases of systemic lupus erythematosus in Finland 2000–2008
TLDR
Investigation in patients with recent-onset systemic lupus erythematosus in Finland found survival of the patients with SLE was inferior to that of the general population.
Mortality and prognostic factors in Chinese patients with systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
Mortality of systemic lupus erythematosus patients in China was substantial, especially in females, with infection the leading cause of death, and older age at disease onset, infection, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia and pulmonary arterial hypertension were associated with poor outcomes.
Good survival rates in systemic lupus erythematosus in southern Sweden, while the mortality rate remains increased compared with the population
TLDR
A substantially raised mortality rate amongst SLE patients compared with the general population is reported and the main cause of death was cardiovascular disease and this finding was consistent over time.
In-hospital mortality in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus: a study from Jordan 2002–2017
TLDR
Significant pulmonary related deaths may indicate a change in trends in SLE mortality, as renal related mortality is expected to decline due to proper management.
Mortality in SLE patients compared to population controls in Finland in years 2000-2015.
TLDR
The results suggest that the increased mortality in SLE patients is highly associated with comorbidities present at diagnosis, and underlines the importance to screen and treat comorebidities and disease actively without delays.
Assessing the relative impact of lupus nephritis on mortality in a population-based systemic lupus erythematosus cohort
TLDR
In this population-based SLE cohort, LN was associated with increased morbidity and mortality, whereas SLE patients who did not develop LN had good overall prognoses regarding survival.
Epidemiology of cutaneous lupus erythematosus and the associated risk of systemic lupus erythematosus: a nationwide cohort study in Denmark
TLDR
The annual incidence rate of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) and the risk of receiving an additional diagnosis of SLE to be lower than previously described is found, but continued monitoring and thorough information for patients with CLE is important due to the inherent risk of S LE.

TLDR
There was a fourfold increased risk of death in a cohort of patients with SLE compared with the general population and malignancy was the most common cause of death.
Systemic lupus erythematosus in Saudi Arabia: morbidity and mortality in a multiethnic population
TLDR
The features of patients with Lupus erythematosus in Saudi Arabia are summarized, finding that renal disease tends to be common and has a severe prognosis, and thus merits additional attention.

TLDR
The judicious use of immunosuppressive agents may be important to decrease infection and to improve survival in SLE patients.
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in Northwestern Spain: A 20-Year Epidemiologic Study
TLDR
A younger age and the presence of nephritis at the time of disease diagnosis were associated with the development of flares during the follow-up of Lugo patients, and the probability of survival in patients with SLE was significantly reduced.
Current causes of death in systemic lupus erythematosus in Europe, 2000—2004: relation to disease activity and damage accrual
TLDR
The bimodal mortality curve has flattened out and deaths now occur evenly throughout the disease course with infectious and cardiovascular complications as the main direct COD in both early and late fatalities.
Causes of mortality among inpatients with systemic lupus erythematosus in a tertiary care hospital in North India over a 10-year period
TLDR
Active SLE and/or infection are the major causes of death in hospitalised patients with SLE, and measures to prevent hospital-acquired infections are required.
Incidence and mortality of systemic lupus erythematosus in a southern Chinese population, 2000-2006.
TLDR
The SMR of SLE was significantly increased in younger patients, indicating a greater effect of the disease on younger individuals, and there was a trend of improvement in SMR for SLE in recent years, probably as a result of fewer infectious complications.
Causes and predictors of mortality in hospitalized lupus patient in Sarawak General Hospital, Malaysia
TLDR
Infection and flare were the main causes of death in hospitalized Asian patients with SLE and the presence of infection with flare and high damage indices at the time of admission were independent prognostic indicators of mortality.
