Lupus on the skin can come in multiple forms with the most common findings of butterfly rashes, rashes from sunlight, and discoid lesions (scarring, disfiguring lesion). We will discuss the role of the immune, hormonal and environmental factors in the skin disease of lupus. We will review newer therapies and their efficacy in skin disease. Lastly, we will stress the importance of prevention through use of sunscreens, avoidance of the sun and clothing that blocks ultraviolet light.
