The acute form of disseminated lupus erythematosus is relatively uncommon particularly in members of the Negro race. Cluxton and Krause1 in a comprehensive review of this disease state, "The white race seems more susceptible to the disease. However, two of the three cases reported by Keefer and Felty were Negroes." It is to be noted, however, that both of the Negro patients reported by Keefer and Felty2 were females. Two additional cases of this disease in colored females have been reported.3, 4
