Lupus is an autoimmune disease characterized by acute and chronic inflammation of various tissues of the body. Autoimmune diseases are illnesses that occur when the body's tissues are attacked by its own immune system. The immune system is a complex system within the body that is designed to fight infectious agents, such as bacteria and other foreign microbes.Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) is an autoimmune disease that, depending on the severity, can harm the skin, kidneys, heart, nervous system, blood cells, and more. Lupus symptoms vary widely and can include fatigue, joint pain, swelling, fever, and rashes. Other types of lupus include discoid or cutaneous lupus, drug-induced systemic lupus, neonatal lupus, and subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus.
