The relationship between allergic disorders (such as atopic dermatitis, asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is still unclear and controversial. We investigated the prevalence of these allergic disorders in SLE patients and their families. A questionnaire about the history of allergy was completed by 52 SLE patients and by 52 matched (including race, age, sex and region) non-SLE controls. Our results indicated that there was a significantly lower incidence of these allergic diseases in SLE patients, especially those who had an allergic family histories, when compared with the controls. These findings may be related to the immunological similarities and differences between SLE and various allergic diseases.
