Physicians who treat many patients with systemic lupus erythematosus recognize that much time must be spent with each patient. It is important that the patient and the family should understand the disease, its many courses, its unpredictability, the factors that may aggravate it and produce exacerbations; they must also understand the management and the drugs used for treatment. These and many other facets of the disease are lucidly set out by Dr. Haserick and Dr. Kellum in this Primer for Patients with Lupus Erythematosus. They have done a most useful service for patients with this disease and for their physicians.
