Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 2002,
Abstract: A case of lupus erythematosus profundus, with associated mastitis, but without any lesions of discoid lupus erythematosus or systemic lupus erythematosus is being reported.

Abstract: Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus (BSLE) is a rare variant of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) which histologically resembles dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) and responds dramatically to dapsone. We report a case of bullous SLE.

Abstract: This study examined differences in accelerometer output when subjects walked on level ground and on a treadmill. We asked 25 nondisabled participants to wear an RT3 triaxial accelerometer (StayHealthy, Inc; Monrovia, California) and walk at their "normal" and "brisk" walking speeds for 10 minutes. These activities were repeated on a treadmill using the individual speeds from level-ground walking on two occasions 1 week apart. Paired t-tests found a difference in RT3 accelerometer vector magnitude (VM) counts/min between the two walking speeds on both surfaces on days 1 and 2 (p < 0.001). Although we found no significant differences between VM counts/min on the two surfaces at normal and brisk speeds on days 1 and 2 (p > 0.05), we found wide limits of agreement between level ground and treadmill walking at both speeds. Measurement and discrimination of walking intensity employing RT3 accelerometer VM counts/min on the treadmill demonstrated reasonable validity and stability over two time points compared with level-ground walking.
Lupus erythematosus panniculitis  [cached]

Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 1994,
Abstract: An infant presented with thick erythematous plaques having central necrosis, situated over cheeks and wrists. On the basis of clinical features and histology, diagnosis of lupus erythematosus panniculitis (LEP) was made. Lesions responded well to systemic steroids. To our knowledge, cases of LEP in this age group have not been reported earlier.
Chilblain lupus erythematosus  [cached]
Mittal R,Gill S,Jot T
Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 1994,
Abstract: Two cases of chilblain lupus erythematosus (CLE) were seen in females aged 33 years and 18 years. Photosensitivity, chronicity and aggravation in winters were present in both cases. Histopathology revealed follicular keratosis, atrophy and extensive liquefaction of basal cells. Oral pradinisolone with chloroquine resulted in marked improvement in the skin lesions.
Lupus erythematosus panniculitis
Roy Aloke,Ghosh Sadhan,Bandhyopadhyou Debabrata,Das Jayasri
Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 1997,
Abstract: Lupus erythematosus panniculitis is a quite rare clinical entity characterised by one or several firm, asymptomatic, often fairly large subcutaneous nodules, as a manifestation of SLE or DLE. Two cases of lupus panniculitis, both female, are described here. Both of them had absence of typical lesions of SLE or DLE elsewhere in the body. Systemic symptoms were not present, antinuclear factor was positive in one case. Both showed typical lobular panniculitis on biospy and responded favourably to systemic chloroquine therapy.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by multisystemic involvement and diverse manifestations. Neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus (NPSLE) is a complex neurological disorder characterized by neuropsychological dysfunction. NPSLE is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. In 1999, the American College of Rheumatology developed 19 discrete neuropsychiatric syndromes that comprised NPSLE. Nervous system disease in systemic lupus erythematosus is manifested by a wide variety of clinical manifestations. The pathogenesis of NPSLE is due to autoantibodies, neuronal and non neuronal antigens and the generation of proinflammatory cytokines and mediators. Anatomopathological lesions are attributed to in situ thrombosis, edema, hemorrhage, vasculitis, atherosclerosis or atheroembolism. The diagnosis of NPSLE remains largely one of exclusion and is approached by clinical evaluation, and supported when necessary by autoantibody profiles, diagnostic imaging, electrophysiologic studies and objective assessment of cognitive performance. Brain MRI abnormalities in NPSLE might show small punctate focal lesions in white matter being the most common MRI finding, followed by cortical atrophy, ventricular dilation, cerebral edema, diffuse white matter abnormalities, focal atrophy, cerebral infarction, acute leukoencephalopathy and intracranial hemorrhage. The treatment is based on the use of symptomatic therapies, immunosuppressives and non-pharmacologic interventions. This review paper was designed to understand the pathophysiology for better management of NPSLE.

Systemic lupus erythematosus

Abstract: Systemic lupus erythematosus in children and adolescents is a multisystem autoimmune disease with a great variability in disease presentation and course. Approximately 15% of the patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have the onset of their disease in childhood or adolescence. The common symptoms of SLE in children and adolescents include fever, fatigue, weight loss, arthritis, rash and renal disease. Although it is a life-long and serious disease with a high morbidity and mortality rate, the prognosis has dramatically improved with the aggressive use of high dose corticosteroids combined with other potent anti-inflammatory agents. This article summarizes available epidemiologic data, pathogenesis, clinical patterns, approaches to investigation and treatment, and recent outcome data. (Turk Arch Ped 2008; 43 Suppl: 12-6)

Abstract: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic inflammatory disease that has protean manifestations and follows a relapsing and remitting course. It is characterized by an autoantibody response to nuclear and cytoplasmic antigens. SLE can affect any organ system, but mainly involves the skin, joints, kidneys, blood cells, and nervous system (see Clinica l). The diagnosis of SLE must be based on the proper constellation of clinical findings and laboratory evidence. American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria summarizes features necessary for diagnosis. (See Workup.) Management depends on disease severity and organ involvement. Periodic follow-up and laboratory testing are imperative to detect signs and symptoms of new organ-system involvement and to monitor the response or adverse reactions to therapies. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a long-term autoimmune disorder that may affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs.

Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 2003,
Abstract: Chilblain lupus erythematosus with depigmentation is a rare presentation of lupus erythematosus that may simulate vitiligo. A 52-year-old lady with such a manifestaiton is being reported.
