Who all gets lupus?

Who all gets lupus?

Genes, environment: This answer will change as we know more about lupus. We believe that for a person to get lupus, from the limited genetic information we have now, about 10% is from known genetic causes and remaining 90% unknown genetic causes and environmental causes.
