Dichas lesiones se manifiestan en una gran variedad de formas clinicas; segun la clasificacion de Gilliam (4), las lesiones cutaneas del LES pueden ser especificas o inespecificas: entre las primeras estan: LE cutaneo agudo (localizado o generalizado), LE cutaneo subagudo (anular, papuloescamoso) y LE cutaneo cronico (discoide, hipertrofico o verrucoso, lupus profundus o paniculitis lupica, lupus tumidus y lupus sabanon o perniotico).
With respect to chronic cutaneous lupus, those with generalized discoid lesions have a 20% chance of developing SLE, those with lupus profundus are estimated to have a 10% chance, those with localized discoid lesions have a 5% chance, and those with lupus tumidus have virtually no chance.
