Abstract

Compilation of worldwide data regarding the incidence and prevalence of pediatric-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is needed in order to evaluate the scope of the disease in the pediatric population. A literature review was performed to unify the current data available on the global incidence and prevalence of pediatric-onset SLE. We examined 13 available epidemiological studies concentrated on the incidence and prevalence of pediatric-onset SLE. The available reports were predominantly from North America, Europe and Asia. The limited amount of studies available highlights the need for more epidemiological research in order to better comprehend the global scope of this disease.
