Lupus is a complex autoimmune disease and effects more woman than men. This is thought to be due to hormones. It is quite often referred to as the great mimic, making it very difficult to diagnose.
Until 1948 Lupus symptoms in women were thought to be quite rare and only the obvious cases were diagnosed.
