Abstract

In conclusion, in a review of 52 male lupus patients we found an increased incidence of thrombocytopenia and renal disease without any other notable differences in clinical, laboratory, or serological parameters. Of further interest was the finding of an early peak in the age of onset of disease resembling that found among female SLE patients, and a generally poor prognosis as has been reported by others.
