This disease acquired its name from its characteristic features –rash
over the bridge of the nose and cheeks that looks like wolf bites (the affected area tends to resemble a butterfly in form).
From our point of view, systemic lupus erythematosus isa pathocomplex-induced disease. The distinctive feature of this disease in comparison to other diseases of systemic origin is that its symptoms are not restricted to certain organs
and systems, but instead, diffusely affect almost all organs. Such tendency in systemic lupus erythematosus is triggered by a diffusive, uniform distribution of tissue macrophages throughout the
body. Recall that the map of macrophages distribution across various organs plays a major role in the capture and absorption of pathocomplexes on the tissues of these organs. For this reason,
systemic lupus erythematosus tends to affect almost all body organs and systems.
On the skin, it tends to manifest in the form of a butterfly,
discoid lupus (thick red scaly patches on the skin), alopecia areata and ulceration of the mouth, nose and vagina.
Joint pain, hematologic failure manifested in destruction of
autologous blood cells, pericarditis, myocarditis, and endocarditis, heart valve damage, kidney damage in the form of lupus nephritis, hematuria, proteinuria, renal failure, psychosis,
encephalopathy, convulsions, paresthesia, cerebral vasculitis – these are all symptoms of systemic lupus erythematosus.
The two aspects of pathocomplex process that are clearly manifested
in systemic lupus erythematosus are sedimentation of pathocomplexes on body tissues and immunodeficiency. Infectious diseases arise precisely due to immune deficiency.
Systemic lupus erythematosus, just like other
pathocomplex-induced diseases, can be completely cured with our treatment.
