Systemic lupus erythematosus, a disease capable of exhibiting virtually any clinical manifestation, is discussed in detail and the findings are compared to those in other, presumably systemic lupus erythematosus-related connective tissue diseases. More emphasis has been placed on the clinical features than on the numerous laboratory manifestations. The conference begins and ends with a brief consideration of current concepts of pathogenesis and suggests some future investigational directions.
