U.K. researchers looked at 608 systemic lupus erythematosus patients and found that those who developed the disease between ages 11 and 18 had greater rates of lupus nephritis and hemolytic anemia compared with adult-onset patients. They noted a lower incidence of serositis and secondary Sjögren's syndrome in the adolescent-onset group. The findings were presented at the British Society for Rheumatology meeting.
