Environmental factors predicting nephritis in systemic lupus erythematosus.
Objectives-To evaluate social class, ethnic origin, and various endocrine variables as potential risk factors in the development of nephritis in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Methods-A cross-sectional survey was carried out of all outpatients with SLE attending the lupus Clinic of St Thomas's Hospital from March to October 1992 using retrospective survival data.
The main outcome measure was the duration of SLE before the onset of nephritis.
Two hundred and ninety six women and 11 men were studied; the male patients were excluded from the analysis.
