Abstract

Survival in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in developed countries has improved considerably over the last 2 decades. In India, however, survival in patients with SLE reported 5 years ago from this tertiary referral centre was very poor. The present study was conducted to examine trends, if any, towards improvement in the survival of patients with SLE attending the same centre during the period 1981-1990. No statistically significant change in survival was noted. It appears that improvement in the survival of SLE patients would require an overall improvement in the standard of medical care in India.
