Lupus. Erythematosus. (SLE):. The. Great. Pretender. Most of us don't think about
lupus when we have chronic backache. But if you have undiagnosed backache,
neck pain, or muscle or joint pain with occassional fever and other generalized
symptoms, your doctor might order special blood tests to rule out systemic lupus.
It's not unusual for patients to spend years undergoing treatment for arthritis and
other diagnoses only to discover that they have systemic lupus, a disease that ...

»Man nannte sie the great imitator.« Ich lächelte und hielt das für einen ihrer
üblichen Wortwitze. Mich nannte sie »the great pretender«, ein Spitzname, den
sie von dem gleichnamigen Song entlehnt hatte. Doch ihr plauderndes
Gesichtchen war nun angespannt und voller Mitgefühl. »Ich glaube, weil sie viele
andere Krankheiten imitiert.« »Auch Syphilis?« »I suppose. Das hatte was mit
eurem Lupus zu tun.« »Lupus?« Sie löschte die letzten Lichter, und wir gingen

As indicated previously, lupus is known as the "great imitator" or the "great
pretender" because its symptoms often mimic other diseases. To compound
matters, not all lupus patients have every symptom and no two patients have
precisely the same symptoms. This of course makes diagnosis very difficult and
incorrect diagnosis very easy. This stage of the trajectory can typically begin with
a symptom that overtly mimics another commonly diagnosed illness, e.g., the
most frequent initial ...

many of its symptoms mimic those of other diseases, making diagnosis vexingly
difficult, especially during its early stages. A definitive diagnosis can take a year
or more.

Lupus is a challenging disease for the physician. It is sometimes called the "great
pretender" because its symptoms are so wide-ranging and difficult to separate
from other conditions. If one of my lupus patients has aches and fever and other
signs of infection, for example, I have to figure out whether this is a manifestation
of her lupus or a completely separate condition. The drugs used to treat lupus
may cause side effects that are also hard to distinguish from the symptoms of
