Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). This disease can cause inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ system. Lupus is a disease of flares and remission – making life with lupus very unpredictable. It strikes mostly women of childbearing age; although women of all ages, as well as men and children, develop lupus. It is a life-threatening, life-diminishing disease.
