Autoimmune: Systemic lupus erythematosus is an auto immune illness. This means people have a immume response against themselves and their own tissues. The hallmark blood test is a positive anti-nuclear antibody or an ana. Depending on what tissue is involved results in the clinical symptoms such as rash, arthritis, kidney disease etc. The cause seems be a combination of genetic and environmental exposures.
