The present concept of the symptom-complex known as acute lupus erythematosus disseminatus has been formulated over the period of the last 100 years.
Hebra,1 in 1845, first -described lupus erythematosus as a local cutaneous lesion under the name "seborrhea congestiva." Six years later Cazenave2 gave the disease its present name. It was not until 1872 that Kaposi3 subdivided the disease into "lupus erythematosus discoides" and "lupus erythematosus discretus and aggregatus." He was the first to realize the generalized and systemic manifestations of the latter form with its attending grave prognosis, as three of his 11 cases died while under observation.
