Abstract

Introduction: Lupus erythematosus (LE) is an autoimmune disease characterized by a broad range of cutaneous manifestations. Discoid LE (DLE) is the most common chronic manifestation of LE. Literature reviews show that there are a limited number of large-series studies investigating DLE. Additionally, there is still no consensus on the etiological factors of DLE such as sun exposure and smoking.
