erythematosus--a review of literature.
El estudio histopatologico de las lesiones muestra tambien hallazgos muy similares a los descritos en la perniosis, pero en el chilblain lupus
se observa ademas una marcada degeneracion vacuolar a lo largo de la capa basal de la epidermis.
Another indication of this is the recent characterization of a genetic locus associated with familial chilblain lupus that mapped to chromosome 3p.
Familial chilblain lupus, a monogenic form of cutaneous lupus erythematosus, maps to chromosome 3p.
Anti-SS-A antibody has been reported to be associated with a subtype of lupus erythematosus, chilblain lupus
