Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease involving multiple organ systems. Musculoskeletal involvement is one of the most frequent presentations of the disease, affecting bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, either as a primary manifestation or secondary to the treatment of the disease. In the present article, the authors review and illustrate the joint disorders and the most common musculoskeletal abnormalities seen in this disorder.

Keywords : Systemic lupus erythematosus; Arthropathy; Musculoskeletal abnormalities.
