Abstract

Kidney involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is common and is a major contributor to disease morbidity and mortality. At presentation, up to 50 % of patients with SLE will have clinical evidence of renal involvement – abnormal renal function and haematuria with or without proteinuria. During follow-up renal involvement will be evident in >60 %, with an even greater representation among children and young adults.
