Abstract

Lupus erythematosus, or LE, is a connective tissue disease that affects a number of organ systems. Patients with this condition can experience several other serious conditions--bleeding, infection, endocarditis, adrenal insufficiency and mucocutaneous disease--that can affect the provision of dental care. The authors describe considerations for managing dental treatment of patients with LE.
