Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease in which a person's immune system attacks various organs or cells of the body causing damage and dysfunction. SLE is called a multi-system disease because it can affect many different tissues and organs in the body. Some patients with lupus have a very mild condition, which can be treated with simple medications, whereas others can have serious, life-threatening complications. Lupus is more common in women than men, and its peak incidence is after puberty-the reason for this is unknown.
SLE can affect any part of the body, but most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. patients with SLE can develop different combination of symptoms and organ involvement.
Severe SLE is treated with corticosteroids, also called steroids, which suppress the inflammatory process.
Oral prednisone (Deltasone, Orasone) is usually prescribed. Other drugs include methylprednisolone (Medrol, Solumedrol), hydrocortisone, and dexamethasone (Decadron).
Unfortunately, serious and even life-threatening complications have been associated with long-term steroid use. The bone-thinning condition osteoporosis is a common and particularly severe long-term side effect of prolonged steroid use.
