What is Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)?
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation of various tissues throughout the body. SLE occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs, causing inflammation. Because the autoantibodies can affect tissue anywhere within the body, SLE can affect the skin, heart, lungs, joints, etc.
