Systemic Lupus Erythematous
What are the clinical features of Discoid Lupus Erythematosus?

Vasospasm of small vessels with pain and color change
White atrophic plaques that are often associated with localized scleroderma - can be seen in the genital area
- Non-caseating granulomas
- Often seen in scars or sites of trauma
- Elevated ACE levels
