Skin changes are one of the hallmarks of SLE and often the initial symptom the patient is aware of. Their kind and severity indicate certain disease subsets, serologic patterns, other organ involvements, and inflammatory activity of the systemic disease.

Since SLE might show many features of skin disease and must only have the potential to involve sites other than the skin to be classified as systemic, it will always be of substantial value for a given patient with SLE when the dermatologist is aware of and familiar with systemic features and the rheumatologist is able to recognize the different skin manifestations of the disease.
