Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

Dr Gurmeet Mangat
SLE - Diagnosis
The diagnosis is made in the presence of at least 2 appropriate clinical features and strongly positive antinuclear antibody test (ANA) and a positive dsDNA test. The point to note is that ANA should be done by immunofluorescence method and a titre of more than 1:80 is significant.

Infections are common in our setting and specific infections like tuberculosis should be ruled out. In children, malignancies of the blood and lymph nodes have to be carefully eliminated.
