Alopecia was observed in 40/74 (54%) patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Patients with alopecia had a significantly higher rating for cutaneous manifestations, Raynaud's phenomenon and muscle tenderness, and most of these signs correlated with the magnitude of alopecia. There was no difference between patients with or without alopecia for arthritis, nephritis or central nervous system manifestations. Alopecia correlated with disease activity index but did not correlate with various specific measurements of disease exacerbation.
