Shingles, allergies, family medical history, oral contraceptives, and other potential risk factors for systemic lupus erythematosus.
The authors undertook a case-control study to explore the many factors that have been postulated to be related to the etiology of systemic lupus erythematosus.
A total of 195 cases of systemic lupus diagnosed in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, metropolitan area between 1985 and 1987 were compared with 143 controls, friends of the cases matched to them according to age (±5 years) and sex.
Through personal interviews and chart reviews, data were collected on demographic factors, personal and familial medical history, reproductive history, medication history, and environmental exposures.
