The purpose of this chapter is to improve the participant’s skill in the clinical diagnosis of the cutaneous manifestations of lupus erythematosus (LE). Discussion will focus on characteristic disease patterns without an exhaustive review of obscure variations. Laboratory parameters that support the clinical findings will be discussed, along with a review of current therapy. The material on LE will conclude with comparisons between cutaneous LE and other common dermatitides that can be confused with both discoid and systemic LE.
