Update on the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus.

The improving prognosis in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus is due in no small part to refinements in treatment. One idea is to tailor the treatment to the specific clinical features. For example, the treatment of cutaneous lupus may require antimalarial and topical agents initially, with more severe cases requiring dapsone or even thalidomide. Conversely, renal involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus is better treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents such as intravenous cyclophosphamide, mycophenolate mofetil or azathioprine. It is very clear that comorbidities such as steroid-induced diabetes mellitus, hypertension and osteonecrosis have been responsible for a great deal of the morbidity associated with systemic lupus erythematosus and must be aggressively managed. In addition to 'traditional' agents, newer medications such as rituximab, abatacept and B-lymphocyte stimulator antagonists are showing great promise and will probably be an an important part of the management of severe lupus in the future.[1]
