Lupus erythematosus is a connective tissue autoimmune disorder that demonstrates systemic, cutaneous, or both systemic and cutaneous manifestations. Cutaneous lesions are classified as specific and nonspecific. The variety of clinical manifestations of the disease is reflected in the broad spectrum of laboratory patterns. In this article we describe the distinct subsets of cutaneous lupus erythematosus, correlating them with histopathological, direct immunofluorescence and serological findings.
