what is systemic lupus?

Autoimmune disease

Rash
Lupus erythematosus is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause. The immune system attacks the patient's own body (autoimmunity) and can inflame the skin, joints, kidneys, nervous system, lungs, mucous membranes, and other internal organs. A red rash is often but not always present. Thus, it was named lupus erythematosus meaning "red wolf."

What is a systemic infection?

Depends

Fever
A "systemic infection" can mean either than an infection has affected the whole body and many organ systems, or it can mean that the body is reacting to an infection in a localized place, like a pneumonia, with signs like fever, fast heart rate and fast breathing rate. So, it depends on what "systemic" means.

What is systemic breast cancer?

Cancer Elsewhere

Open-uri20130309-20109-1caxa4w
What makes any cancer "evil" is the POTENTIAL for cancer cells to break away & travel thru the bloodstream or lymphatics & take up residence in a different organ. SYSTEMIC DISEASE implies that there are cancer cells "elsewhere", either indirectly identified by microscopic examination (+lymph node) or seen on X-ray studies (metastatic disease). RX requires meds that travel "elsewhere", ie CHEMO-RX.

Mom has systemic mrsa--what is this?

Resistant Staph inf.

Mrsa
This is likely MRSA or Methacillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus. This is a strain that is resistant to a drug that normally kills this. The best drug for this is likely Vancomycin and there are instances of resistance to this as well. For a patient with systemic disease, like your mom, high doses of antibiotics are given and isolation is done to stop its spread.
