Since the discovery of the L.E. test1 as a highly specific diagnostic procedure, our knowledge of the clinical course and manifestations of disseminated lupus erythematosus has increased markedly. It has become apparent that this disease may present itself in an atypical manner which may precede the onset of clinically recognizable disseminated lupus erythematosus by many years. This is particularly true of hematologic manifestations such as thrombocytopenic purpura, hemolytic anemia and clotting abnormalities.
