Una proteinuria sottovalutata
An underestimated proteinuria
<p>Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a connective tissue disease characterized by skin erythema-sensitivity to sunlight. It systemically effects almost all organs and systems due to immune complexes and complement deposits.The early diagnosis of SLE is imperative to initiate the correct therapy and limit further damage to the organs. Laboratory auto-immunity tests play a vital role in the diagnosis of this disease, as described in our case study. We have considered the clinical history of a patient who has shown symptoms and laboratory data apparently unrelated, for up to five years. We suggested further and appropriate laboratory tests resulting in the diagnosis of SLE. We believe that this clinical case could be of great interest because it points out the importance of multidisciplinary approach to an early diagnosis of this disease, especially when the clinical symptoms are not specific. Once again, it also highlights the central role of the laboratory in diagnosis of autoimmune disease.</p>
