Increased attention has recently been drawn by various observers1-7 to the importance of visceral involvement in acute lupus erythematosus. A greater familiarity with the signs and symptoms of this disease has naturally resulted in a more frequent recognition of this syndrome. Ludy and Carson8 believe that the incidence has actually increased.
The exact diagnostic criteria have not yet been established, however. This is due not alone to the fact that the etiology is unknown but more so because there seems to be no minimum number of clinical or pathological features that one may expect to find consistently in each case.
