Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a heterogeneous disease that may affect many different organs; early diagnosis prevents adverse consequences and clearly improves the prognosis. The diagnosis of SLE is symptom-based and often requires an interdisciplinary approach . Given the wide heterogeneity of clinical manifestations, several sets of classification criteria have been developed over time for epidemiological and research purposes Systemic lupus erythematosus can be difficult to diagnose: no single blood or imaging test can definitively identify it, and its symptoms can be vague, progress slowly, change, or mimic other conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. As a result, it's important to consult a rheumatologist Diagnosing lupus is difficult because signs and symptoms vary considerably from person to person. Signs and symptoms of lupus may change over time and overlap with those of many other disorders. No one test can diagnose lupus. The combination of blood and urine tests, signs and symptoms, and physical examination findings leads to the diagnosis
