Lupus is an autoimmune disease that affects the skin and sometimes the mucous membranes. There are a number of forms of the disease, the most common being lupus erythematosis.
Lupus erythematosus is a disease that typically affects the skin and joints. It can, however, also harm the heart, kidneys and nervous system. It is classified as an autoimmune disease which means that in addition to attacking unwanted germs, the cells responsible for defending the body attack otherwise healthy tissue. The result is the self-destruction of tissue and organs. Women between the ages of 18 and 40 years are most at risk for developing this disease.
