Generally, inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems, including the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs.
Also, Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many, but not all cases of lupus.
According to medical experts, some people are born with a tendency toward developing lupus, which may be triggered by infections, certain drugs or even sunlight.
While there is no cure for Lupus, treatments can help control symptoms.
