A 24-h urinary protein is a standard way to diagnose lupus nephritis. Assessment of protein–creatinine (Pr–Cr) ratio in morning spot urine is a valuable method in diabetic patients but not use in systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) patients routinely. In this study Pr–Cr ratio in spot urine was compare with 24-h urine protein; if they have valuable correlation we can use this test instead of 24-h urinary protein. The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation of spot urine Pr–Cr ratio for… CONTINUE READING
