Resumen:
Drug-induced lupus erythematosus (DILE) refers to a condition whose clinical, histological, and immunological features are similar to those seen in idiopathic lupus erythematosus but that occurs when certain drugs are taken and resolves after their withdrawal. Over 90 drugs have been linked to DILE to date and the list is growing. Like idiopathic lupus erythematosus, DILE has systemic, subacute cutaneous, and chronic cutaneous forms. A correct diagnosis is very important, as this condition usually resolves after withdrawal of the offending drug.
