Does anyone have Tumid Lupus?
I’m wondering if anyone with Lupus (SLE) has had skin mottling (Livedo Reticularis). I’m being tested for autoimmune diseases and cancers. I have a mottling rash (violet/reddish) on my chest and arms. It came up literally overnight! I have elevated liver enzymes and tested positive for ANA, specifically AMA reticular. My first lupus test came back negative but the doctor ordered a more specific lupus anticoagulant test. My skin biopsies are scheduled for this week. I have this skin issue and fatigue. I don’t have joint issues. I’m wondering if anyone has any similar experiences or advice. I’m new to all of this.
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autoimmune Diseases Support Group.
I’m waiting on biopsy results, but the dermatologist says he’s fairly confident that I have Tumid Lupus(TLE). I have positive ANA (1:160:tiger) as well so I’m waiting on curt bloodwork to see if I have SLE as well. Does anyone have TLE? There seems to be limited information on it compared to other types of Lupus.
Hi @kaydee01, if you put Tumid Lupus into the search field you'll find several discussions where members are talking about this type of lupus. Here's a link to one of the longer running discussions:
