Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease of unknown etiology and incurable; in most cases with medical care and an interdisciplinary team can live with the disease without major complications. Lupus can be associated with other conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, neuropsychiatric disorders, kidney infections, chronic renal failure, infections in the membranes that cover the heart and lung, skin lesions among others. The patient with an underlying pathology and comorbidities is considered a particular patient therefore needs constant medical care. In dentistry, a patient with such a disease should be treated at the hospital for necessary support if there are complications or de-compensation at the dental procedure.
