The Lupus UK is a voluntary organization in the United Kingdom dedicated to providing information and support to individuals affected by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), an autoimmune disorder that is characterized by chronic inflammation affecting the skin, joints, or other connective tissues of the body. Different tissues and organs may be involved, and the range and severity of associated symptoms and findings may vary greatly from case to case. In some individuals with the disorder, symptoms may include weakness and fatigue; persistent flu-like symptoms; joint inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and pain; skin rashes, such as the appearance of a rash across the bridge of the nose and the cheeks ("butterfly" rash); abnormal sensitivity of the skin to light; hair loss; and other abnormalities. Lupus UK was established in 1978 and currently consists of 27 regional groups throughout Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The organization, which is a self-help group run by volunteers, is committed to providing support and assistance to all affected individuals; promoting communication between members and the medical professionals involved in their care; and offering practical assistance. Lupus UK is also dedicated to promoting professional and public awareness of lupus.
