About this book

Introduction

Lupus erythematosus is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease characterized by a wide spectrum of manifestations with a variable evolution. There has been a long-standing need for a book with a unifying concept on the cutaneous manifestations of this disease. The book is based on multidisciplinary knowledge and is written by leading clinicians and scientists. It provides not only a comprehensive description of the vast variety of cutaneous abnormalities but also a synthesis of the relationship between cutaneous and systemic changes, including chapters on classification and clinical aspects, pathogenesis and pathologic features, and treatment and management of lupus erythematosus. In summary, the book is an important resource for clinicians and scientists working in the field of autoimmune diseases.
