Cutaneous Lesions

Malar erythema has been noted in up to four fifths of children with SLE (Font et al. 1998, Lehman 1993, Schaller 1982, Wananukul et al. 1998). Discoid lesions may occur in children with SLE, sometimes as a presenting sign. In a review of 16 cases of childhood discoid LE (DLE) with onset before age 10 years (10 boys and 6 girls), progression to systemic disease was common (George and Tunnessen 1993). Of the 16 cases, 10 were followed into adulthood, and 5 of the 10 developed SLE. SCLE, LE tumidus, LE panniculitis, and bullous LE have all been noted in children (Kettler et al. 1988, Kuhn et al. 2000, Provost et al. 1983, Siamopoulou et al. 1989, Taieb et al. 1986).
