Undetected lupus can lead to severe health complications

Posted on January 16, 2015 2:45 pm under Medical Malpractice

Lupus is a chronic illness that occurs when the immune system attacks its own body. This disease may affect almost any tissue and organ in the body, including the joints, skin, brain, lungs, and heart. It is said to occur among people with an autosomal tendency to develop lupus and is believed to be triggered by certain health conditions, medications, or infections.

Because signs and symptoms of lupus often mimic that of other conditions, some health care professionals choose not to conduct further tests to rule out the possibility of lupus. Unfortunately, this carelessness can lead to the mismanagement of lupus, which can ultimately cause additional and severe health complications, including death.
