lupus eritematoso diseminado
Scope note: Trastorno multisistémico crónico, recidivante, inflamatorio y a menudo febril del tejido conectivo, que se caracteriza principalmente por la participación de la piel, articulaciones, riñones, y membranas serosas. Es de etiología desconocida, pero se piensa que representa un fallo de los mecanismos que regulan al sistema autoinmune.

RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D008180
Scope note: A chronic, relapsing, inflammatory, and often febrile multisystemic disorder of connective tissue, characterized principally by involvement of the skin, joints, kidneys, and serosal membranes. It is of unknown etiology, but is thought to represent a failure of the regulatory mechanisms of the autoimmune system. The disease is marked by a wide range of system dysfunctions, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and the formation of LE cells in the blood or bone marrow.
