Rheumatologist 's  Response
it could be lupus, however does she have any other features of lupus like photosensitivity, arthritis, oral ulcers or pleuritis.
since lupus is a multi system disorder it is difficult to diagnose just on the basis of this.
it would probably be worth it to get a biopsy done to get to the root of the problem.
