Lupus Erythematosus Tumidus LET Hypertrophic Lupus Erythematosus Mucosal Lupus Erythematosus

LE tumidus (LET) is a subset of CLE seen when there is excessive accumulation of dermal mucin early in the course of a CLE lesion. The result is edematous, urticarial-appearing plaques of LE tumidus. Hypertrophic HLE (i.e., hyperkeratotic HLE, ver-rucous HLE) is a rare variant of CLE in which the hypekeratosis that is usually present in classic DLE is greatly exaggerated. Mucosal DLE is a variant of chronic cutaneous DLE involving most frequently the oral mucosa, as well as the nasal, conjunctival, and genital mucosal surfaces. The laboratory features of these three subsets of CLE are not well delineated.
