Malar rash, systemic lupus erythematosis

  • "The so-called "butterfly" rash of lupus is typical. It is erythematous, and extends in butterfly fashion over both sides of the face. It is not seen so often nowadays, since physicians are quick to prescripe systemic steroids. The rash is made worse by exposure to sunlight."
