Systemic Lupus Erythematosus SLE

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, abbreviatedas SLE. This is a systemic disease, which means thatit can affect the whole body systemically. The brain, skin, heart, lungs, kidneys, joints,the immune system, the vascular system, and the list goes on. Lupus means Wolf. Erythematosus means reddening of the skin. Why did I show a red butterfly? Because a very typical sign of SLE is a butterflyshaped reddening of the skin.

The way I remember this disease, is to imaginea wolf that attacks a woman, and why a woman? Because 9 out 10 patients are women. So the wolf bites the face of the woman causinga butterfly shaped erythema on her face. Then the wolf continues to bite all her organsone by one, because this disease is a systemic disease, which means that it can affect allthe organs systemically. Of course this disease has nothing to do witha wolf. But SLE is an autoimmune disease, which meansthat this woman called Emma have an immune system that attacks her own body, insteadof only attacking bacterias, viruses and

parasites. So Emma have an immune system that acts asa wolf inside her. I will show you how we can find out if Emmareally has SLE by diagnosing her. And then we will look at what type of medicationswe can give her. I want you to remember at least one thingfrom this presentation. That is Systemic Lupus International Collaboratings, abbreviated as SLICC. SLICC is a criterion that can help in thediagnosis of SLE. SLICC contains al criteria, immunologiccriteria

and biopsy criteria. We need more than 4 criteria with at least1 al and 1 immunologic. Or we need 1 biopsy criteria and 1 immunologiccriteria. So what does these 3 words mean? al, Immunologic and Biopsy? The synonym for , is . So al criteria stand for the symptoms,signs and lab values of a patient in the . Immunology deals with the immune system thatprotects you from bacterias, viruses, and

parasites. Immunologic criteria are usually lab teststhat detect any problem with the immune system. Biopsy means that a cuts out a pieceof an organ. For example, a small piece of kidney can becut out, and then the puts this piece of kidney in a microscope and looks for diseases. al criteria can be divided into Alopecia,which means hairloss. Skin problemsUlcers Heart diseasesLung diseases

Kidney problemsJoint pain Problems with the nervous systemAnd blood diseases. Skin problems can be grouped under the nameCutaneous Lupus Erythematosus. We can divide these skin diseases into acuteSubacute And chronic, based on the timing of the diseases. Acute diseases are usually those that happensuddenly with a short duration. Chronic diseases are ongoing for a long time. Whereas subacute means those diseases thatare not yet chronic but has passed the acute
