In brief: Not cure but control
There are a variety of different types of lupus.
Some go away - a child born with neonatal lupus will improve when the mother's antibodies that caused the syndrome disappear. Drug induced lupus resolves most of the time when the drug is stopped. However what i call "wild" lupus can rarely resolve but it can be controlled with proper evaluation and appropriate treatment.
