CLASSIFICATION

THE 1982 REVISED CRITERIA FOR CLASSIFICATION OF SLE


Classification criteria l.jpg
CLASSIFICATION CRITERIA

  • Must have 4 of 11 for Classification

    • Sensitivity 96%

    • Specificity 96%

  • Like RA, diagnosis is ultimately clinical

  • Not all “Lupus” is SLE

    • Discoid Lupus

    • Overlap syndrome

    • Drug induced lupus

    • Subacute Cutaneous Lupus


Differential diagnosis l.jpg
DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS

  • Almost too broad to consider given number of clinical manifestations

  • Rheumatic: RA, Sjogren’s syndrome, systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis

  • Nonrheumatic: HIV, endocarditis, viral infections, hematologic malignancies, vasculitis, ITP, other causes of nephritis

  • “Overlap Syndrome” (UCTD, MCTD)


Lupus related syndromes l.jpg
LUPUS RELATED SYNDROMES

  • Drug Induced Lupus

    • Classically associated with hydralazine, isoniazid, procainamide

    • Male:Female ratio is equal

    • Nephritis and CNS abnormalities rare

    • Normal complement and no anti-DNA antibodies

    • Symptoms usually resolve with stopping drug


Lupus related syndromes38 l.jpg
LUPUS RELATED SYNDROMES

  • Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS)

    • Hypercoagulability with recurrent thrombosis of either venous or arterial circulation

    • Thrombocytopenia-common

    • Pregnancy complication-miscarriage in first trimester

    • Lifelong anticoagulation warfarin is currently recommended for patients with serious complications due to common recurrence of thrombosis

    • Antiphospholipid Antibodies

    • Primary when present without other SLE feature.

    • Secondary when usual SLE features present


Lupus related syndromes39 l.jpg
LUPUS RELATED SYNDROMES

Raynaud’s Syndrome:

-Not part of the diagnostic criteria for SLE

- Does NOT warrant ANA if no other clinical evidence to suggest autoimmune disease


Sle treatment i l.jpg
SLE – treatment I.

  • Mild cases (mild skin or joint involvement): NSAID, local treatment, hydroxy-chloroquin

  • Cases of intermediate severity (serositis, cytopenia, marked skin or joint involvement): corticosteroid (12-64 mg methylprednisolon), azathioprin, methotrexat


Sle treatment ii l.jpg
SLE – treatment II.

  • Severe, life-threatening organ involvements (carditis, nephritis, systemic vasculitis, cerebral manifestations): high-dose intravenous corticosteroid + iv. cyclophosphamide + in some cases: plasmapheresis or iv. immunoglobulin, or, instead of cyclophosphamide: mycophenolate mofetil (not registered in the EU)

  • Some cases of nephritis (especially membranous), myositis, thrombocytopenia: cyclosporine


Treatment l.jpg
TREATMENT

  • Antiphospholipid Syndrome

    • Anticoagulation with warfarin (teratogenic)

    • subcutaneous heparin and aspirin is usual approach in pregnancy

  • Lupus and Pregnancy

    • No longer “contraindicated”

    • No changes in therapy other than avoiding fetal toxic drugs

    • Complications related to renal failure, antiphospholipid antibodies, SSA/SSB


Treatment44 l.jpg
TREATMENT

  • ESR, CRP probably useful as general markers of disease activity

  • Complement and anti-DNA antibodies may correlate to disease activity but often impractical turnaround time from lab

  • Patient history


Prognosis l.jpg
PROGNOSIS

  • Unpredictable course

  • 10 year survival rates exceed 85%

  • Most SLE patients die from infection, probably related to therapy which suppresses immune system

  • Recommend smoking cessation, yearly flu shots, pneumovax q5years, and preventive cancer screening recommendations
