Abstract

Lupus erythematosus is a broad disease category. It can be subdivided into multiple categories including systemic and cutaneous manifestations. Cutaneous lupus can be further subdivided into acute cutaneous lupus, subacute cutaneous lupus and chronic cutaneous lupus. Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) is a further subcategory of chronic cutaneous lupus and it is the most common lupus presentation [1].
